The Prospect Lake District Community and the Community hall lay in the traditional territories of the Lekwungen peoples. We acknowledge with deep respect that we are visitors on these lands, and that the historical relationship of the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples continues to this day. We strongly encourage those who live, work, visit and recreate in the territory acknowledge the homelands of Indigenous nations we experience and occupy and to learn further about your relationship as a visitor to the traditional territories of the nations you reside upon.

The W̱SÁNEĆ People are Salt Water People. Traditionally the W̱SÁNEĆ People had homes throughout the San Juan Islands and on the east and north coasts of the Saanich Peninsula.
Their land went east through the Gulf Islands and San Juan Islands and northeast across Georgia Strait to Boundary Bay. Their territory included the Saanich Inlet and deep into the forest lands on its west side. On the Saanich Peninsula itself, and went south as far as PKOLS (Mount Douglas), and from there across to W̱QENNELEȽ (Mt. Finlayson) and SELE₭TEȽ (Goldstream). W̱SÁNEĆ (Saanich Peninsula) was the headquarters because this is where the W̱SÁNEĆ People built their permanent winter homes.
