Description

Similar to the “moccasin telegraph,”  Spílexm are the remembered stories, also “events or news” in the Nle?kepmx language. Nicola Campbell is Nłeʔkepmx, Syilx, and Métis, from British Columbia. She weaves cultural and land-based teachings that focus on respect, endurance, healing, and reciprocity. These stories are shared over tea, in the quiet hours between Elders. Rooted within the British Columbia landscape, and with an almost tactile representation of being on the land and water, Spíl?xm explores resilience, reconnection, and narrative memory through stories. Captivating and deeply moving, this exceptional memoir tells of one Indigenous woman’s journey of overcoming adversity and colonial trauma to find strength and resilience through creative works and traditional perspectives of healing, transformation, and resurgence.
