VIRTUAL TOUR: Sx̲wōx̲wiyám | The Beating Heart

The root of the Sts’ailes community, which rests on the shores of the Harrison River, was created in a battle between a shaman and Xals, the Transformer. Up the west side of Harrison Lake, the battle took place, and Xals turned the once powerful shaman to stone. With the shaman’s powers limited, spreading broken pieces of his body amongst the territory conserved him, as each piece created landmarks. The village of Sts’ailes lies in the place where his heart landed. His heart beats on.
