The Harbhajan Ranauta Legacy Foundation was formed on the unceded lands of the Coast Salish peoples which includes the sc̓əwaθenaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsawwassen), S’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō), Kwantlen, Stz’uminus, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam). We aim to reassert the kinship and respect expressed through ਤਾਇਕੇ (Taike), the Punjabi word meaning ‘our elder cousins,’ as it was used by early South Asian migrants to refer to the Coast Salish peoples.
