The City of Colwood sits on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish people. This land is defined by the 1850 Douglas Treaty with the Teechamitsa people. It is our honour to have the opportunity to build a strong working relationship with Coast Salish neighbours that is based on trust, humility, and respect for each other. We endeavor to walk softly on these ancestral lands of the Kwsepsum, Lekwungen, Scia’new, and T’Sou-ke families of the Coast Salish area.

Lkwungen (Songhees)
Kwsepsum (Esquimalt)
Scia'new (Beecher Bay)
T’Sou-ke (Sooke)
