"Mother Earth's Wellness"  

from the "Nature for Wellness"

- Mindful Cinematic Ambiance

Vancouver Island Museum of Nature and Society is proud to provide KFN Health Centre - K'ómoks First Nation with our pioneering nature base set of  "Mother Earth's Wellness" movies for use by the residential school survivors and their families as a therapeutic aid for mental distress and intergenerational trauma. 

About K’ómoks First Nation

The K’ómoks First Nation is located in the heart of the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. Membership is currently just over 300 members within four clans: Sahtloot, Saseetla, Ieeksun and Puntledge. Two cultures are identified in our community: Coast Salish (Island-Comox speaking peoples) and Kwakwaka'wakw

(Kwak̓ wala speaking peoples). K’ómoks originally occupied sites in Kelsey Bay, Quinsum, Campbell River, Quadra Island, Kye Bay and along the Puntledge Estuary.
