As one of only 30 fluent Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) language speakers left in Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation), Myia Antone teaches as a way to preserve her language for generations to come. Seeking to learn more about her culture and language, Antone uses her mountain bike as a needle weaving through her ancestral lands and language. While biking with other Indigenous women, Antone utilizes the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh llanguage to point out geographical features and native plants on rides. Weaving complex conversations through nuanced layers of generational trauma, Inseparable: Myia ultimately paints Indigenous joy and community as vital elements for a path forward.
