Abstract

Scholars gain a deeper understand of identity and meaning in Stó:lō history by recognizing the role of ancestral names in Stó:l ō society — at “contact” in the nineteenth century, throughout the twentiethcentury, and in the twenty-first century. Currently, Stó:l ō are reviving traditions of naming ceremonies and carrying ancestral names. Ancestral names are critical to the existence of Stó:lō culture; they are thetangible manifestation of a Stó:lō person’s connection to ancestors, past and future. This paper explores thesignificance of ancestral names in Stó:lō tradition through conversations and interviews conducted in the spring of 2005 with members of the Stó:lō Nation, transcripts of earlier interviews conducted with Stó:lō elders held in the Stó:lō Nation Archives, the ethnography of the Stó:lō, and more recent scholarly works.This analysis seeks to contextualize the role of ancestral names in Stó:lō society to reveal a deep,multilayered, understanding of history.
