Helping cannabis businesses grow and thrive using our collective industry experience and community-focused approach
We work and live in the unceded territories of the Lək̓ʷəŋən speaking Peoples, and recognize the sovereignty of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. By working, living, and using the resources of this land, many of our practices come to this land and are possible through ongoing processes of dispossession and colonialism. Through this understanding, we seek to challenge ourselves, our relationships, and our experiences to this land, its people, and each other in order to work towards a sustainable community that supports Indigenous self-determination.
Purple Camas Consulting is named in honour and respect of the camas plant, which is indigenous to the local lands in which we live, work, and play. Through traditional land management practices, which maintained the Garry oak meadows, camas bulbs were harvested for trade and as a staple food for many Coast Salish communities. Every spring, beautiful purple camas flowers fill the meadows, and in the past couple decades, the Lək̓ʷəŋən have renewed their traditional harvests. In naming our company after the camas flower, we are acknowledging the lands, and contemporary and historical, colonial contexts in which we perform our work.
