Carleen Thomas shares her knowledge of Tsleil-Waututh Nation's traditional territory.
For 16 years, Carleen served as an elected council member for Tsleil-Waututh Nation, where she was responsible for all aspects of community development. Carleen is currently Intergovernmental Relations Project Manager for Tsleil-Waututh Nation's Sacred Trust initiative. As a member of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, Carleen's roots in the Burrard Inlet area go back thousands of years—and she believes it is our sacred duty to protect our land and water for future generations.
