Feasibility Study of the Coqualeetza Indian Hospital at Sardis, B.C. for an Indian Community Center.
Western Consultants, West Vancouver (British Columbia).
The booklet contains a report of a feasibility study for developing the Coqualeetza Indian Hospital at Sardis, British Columbia, into an Indian community center. As explained, before the white man arrived in Fraser Valley, the Indians knew "Coqualeetza" as the "place for cleansing;" Indian women washed their blankets at this spot, but it was more than just cleansing because it was symbolic of discarding old ideas and accepting new ones. The study examined the overall utilization of the Coqualeetza premises (a one-time Indian tuberculosis hospital) for an educational, cultural, and social center to be operated by Indians for the benefit of Indians. It was concluded that establishment of the center would be feasible from a physical, sociocultural, and economic point of view. (EJ)
