(Randy Bouchard and Dorothy Kennedy)
The Sechelt First Nation, on the occasion of their 26th Annual Celebration of Self-Government on 9th October 2012, formally honoured the contributions that Talonbooks authors Randy Bouchard and Dorothy Kennedy’s 1970s ethnographic and linguistic research is making to the cultural strength of this forward-looking First Nation.
After the more formal proceedings in the presence of Sechelt community members, Ralph Maud presented Sechelt Chief Garry Feschuk and his son, Steven, with copies of Maud’s 1978 Talonbooks’ edition of the work of an earlier researcher among the Sechelt, Charles Hill-Tout (The Salish People, Vol. IV), along with Maud’s A Guide to B.C. Indian Myth and Legend (Talonbooks, 1982).
