Télexw means “to learn”.
The Stó:lō people relied on nature to tell them what time of the year it was. Each transition changed when the earth and the animals physically showed the Stó:lō people, it is time! Not by using math and numbers like our calendars do today! This is why it was so important for the people to respect and take care of nature, and all creatures who lived in it. So they didn’t disturb the balance of the earth.
