Janey Chang has been involved with the Squamish Nation since 1999 when she volunteered with the Uts'am Witness Project in the upper Elaho Valley alongside Squamish Nation members, in an effort to protect wild spirit places for cultural and ceremonial use. Janey is an outdoor experiential educator/guide and community builder, passionate about helping people to connect with nature, culture and community in answer to the question "What does it mean to be human and alive?". Her unique areas of interest include ancient technology and reviving the old ancestral ways of living with Mother Earth. Fire craft, spoon carving, natural fibre cordage, knife making, hide tanning and medicinal plants occupy her thoughts and life on a regular basis. She currently supports First Nations students in the North Vancouver School District and is studying Aboriginal Focusing Oriented Therapy and Complex Trauma at the Justice Institute of British Columbia
