On Thursday, January 26 at 7pm, join Massy Arts Society, Massy Books and Vancouver Public Library for Conversations with Khahtsahlano: As We Knew Him.
One of the most significant books on local history that’s been out of print for more than 60 years, Conversations with Khahtsahlano 1932-1954, contains twenty-two years of conversations between Sḵwx̱uwú7mesh Chief X̱ats’alanexw, a.k.a. Chief August Jack Khahtsahlano, and Major J.S. Matthews. First published in 1955, it tells the stories of people who lived in the area, that is now called “Vancouver.”
Join us for an evening of stories from relatives of Khahtsahlano, the publishers of the book, to discuss the importance of republishing a critical part of this not-so-distant hyperlocal history.
