“My name is Cypress Che Seitcher. l live on planet earth and I am Tla-o-qui- aht First Nation living in Ty-Histanis . My father, Terry Doward, is the Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks Coordinator. I enjoy being in the forest and building trails with him. I’m passionate about skateboarding, playing drums, guitar, and listening to music. Currently, I am going into grade 10 at Ucluelet Secondary School and I’m learning more about culture, language, and environmental issues.”
