Since 2015, Loose Lips Magazine has been an independently-funded online publication that is proud to cover local arts, culture, women’s health, and current events. The content published on Loose Lips Magazine aims to spotlight women, non-binary people, and other underrepresented voices.
This coming summer we will be publishing a project entitled “Who is Vancouver?” This series, pitched by an Indigenous and settler writer, will feature one matriarch each from the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish nations. The project intends to educate local settlers on the diverse cultures, customs, languages, and teachings of Coast Salish peoples through a matriarchal lens.
We hope that through this series, citizens of “Vancouver” will begin to unpack the deep historical roots of these Indigenous groups—while understanding the overlapping, yet unique nature of each nation. This project is produced by Loose Lips Magazine with cultural consultation facilitated by Nikki Sanchez.
“Who is Vancouver?” will be featured on our social media platforms, online publication, and our first print issue. To properly illustrate this work, we are seeking a temporary, graphic design/art intern from the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, or Squamish First Nations, but all Indigenous-identified students are welcome to apply. People of all gender identities are welcome to apply, but preference will be given to women-identified or Two-Spirit individuals.
