Board of Directors

Photographer: Agathe Bernard

A̱ka̱la Society is guided by the Musgamakw Dzawada̱’enux̱w law of maya̱’xala, a word that does not have an English language counterpart, but is akin to respect and reciprocity. Within maya̱’xala are values of gratitude and spirituality. We continue to learn how to weave maya̱’xala into our lives and programs, and understand that this will be a lifelong journey. No matter where you are in your understanding and practice of maya’xa̱la, you are welcome to join the A̱ka̱la ‘na̱myut.

A̱ka̱la Society is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of Musgamakw Dzawada̱’enux̱w citizens. The Board of Directors is the collective voice of our organization and provides direction on programming and policies.
