Toghestiy received much of his cultural training from his late grandparents Madeek and Sa’itne. Their teachings brought him through much of the ancient and unceded landscapes. Many days and nights were spent exploring trails, hunting/trapping areas, fishing sites, campsites, and village sites of his people. Today, Toghestiy takes the responsibilities of being a hereditary chief very seriously. His philosophy is based on the ancient Wet’suwet’en philosophy called “Wiggus”, which requires the highest level of understanding, respect, and humility for absolutely everything. There is no price that will ever compromise his responsibility of ensuring that there is always something for the unborn generations.
