The T’Sou-ke Smart Energy Group (T’SEG) has been created with the purpose of educating the T’Sou-ke community about the importance of low impact sustainable energy, through the use of culture, traditional values and historical means of communication.

The T’SEG will raise awareness on subjects such as energy saving initiatives, protecting the environment, saving money by energy reduction, and damages caused by excessive energy consumption. T’SEG plans to raise awareness to the T’Sou-ke community as well as others interested in learning from a First Nations perspective.
This project will be community driven with various educational materials created for different levels of learning and ages, from youth to elders. The educational materials will be designed by T’Sou-ke Nation members.
The members of T’SEG include Taisy Lloyd, Angie Bristol, Tyler Finnie and Mark Gauti; with support from T’Sou-ke Nation communications department, First Power, and the Ministry of the Environment.
The connection of Coast Salish culture to environmental education to T’Sou-ke Nation will be accomplished through several steps. These steps will include research and educational material design as well as running different awareness programs. These steps will lead to a traditional community event, focusing on Coast Salish traditions by incorporating storytelling with an environmental theme.
