Sinixt təmxʷúlaʔxʷ (homeland) maps are now available in local stores, museums, and tourism offices and on the Maa Press website.
The beautifully illustrated 24″ x 36″ colour map represents Sinixt təmxʷúlaʔxʷ, complete with place names labeled in Sn-selxin (the Interior Salish dialect spoken by Sinixt Peoples.) On the back you’ll find information about Sinixt history and culture, Sn-selxin place names and their meanings, and ways to connect with the Autonomous Sinixt.

“The specific language of our land holds important knowledge about this land, about how to live here and honour it. In spite of how much has been lost, my ancestors keep urging me to continue this work. This land is hungry for the language it birthed millennia ago.” – Marilyn James, Elder, Autonomous Sinixt
