Salt Spring II: Cathy's Vanishing Legacy
Salt Spring Island is all trees and rolling mountains, tiny colourful homes with thatched roofs and fields of lavender. It's like a hobbit kingdom!
Cathy Roland (a.k.a. "Aunty Kate") was born on Salt Spring Island six decades ago. She is passionate and proud of her Hawaiian and Salish heritage. Cathy comes from a lineage of early settlers sent by Hawaiian King Kamehameha to help with Canada's fur trade in the 19th century!
She regales us with songs and stories but something is bothering her. Cathy struggles to preserve her family legacy when elders are dying and young ones can't get the facts right.
