Meet The Staff & Board of the Ngystle Society
The Ngystle Society is a unique organization and perhaps the only one of its kind in BC. The volunteer, board-governed society provides a variety of wellness therapies as well as education through workshops, classes and sessions. Topics include meditation, cultural topics and practices like drum making and cedar weaving. Board secretary, Kay Watson, is proud of the programs and classes that the society offers and of its commitment to the Haida First Nations culture.
A big part of the society’s success is due to the community spirit that is prevalent throughout Haida Gwaii. “There is an intimacy here that is not always found in larger cities or towns,” Kay explains, “and you may get to know others that you have never met through individuals you already know.” This familiarity lends itself well to the society’s mandate to improve the health and well-being of community members as the people who run the society and help provide services and instruction often get the opportunity to work with people that they know.
Life on the islands, Kay notes, is relaxed, casual and laid-back. People have more time for one another and these things help to provide a high-quality lifestyle for residents. Island-living has other benefits too, Kay adds, like the ease of going anywhere and getting there quickly (without having to contend with traffic). And, of course, the scenery can’t be beaten.
Empowering. Supportive. Open-Minded.
