Rise: a documentary from the communities along the Lower Lillooet Lake Road

Last year, Xa’xsta (also known as the Douglas First Nation) successfully applied for a $405,000 BC Jobs grant, to create training, mentorship and opportunities for entrepreneurs in the communities.

This video gives a small peek at what has been accomplished through the Roots of Indigenous Strength & Entrepreneurship program, a unique entrepreneurship focused program piloted here.

“The mentors have given us the strength to be active, not reactive, and we have to be active now, to be involved and show our culture and our way of life.”
