British Columbia Grade 5 and 10 students and their teachers are one of the identified audiences for the Voices of Snuneymuxw virtual museum. Although these pages are targeted at this group, the material can also be used and adapted by other teachers, educators and students. It is our hope that the pages of this virtual museum will provide a learning opportunity for anyone interested in the culture of the Snuneymuxw First Nation.
