In 2002 we invited submissions from the community for both a name and logo for our newly developing delegated urban Aboriginal child and family Agency. In early June 2002 the Board members and staff chose the following Agency name submission offered by John Aitken, Health Outreach staff member of the Victoria Native Friendship Centre. The following is John’s submission:
"When I was brainstorming agency names, I thought about what links all the Nations together on the Island. I looked up in the corner of my office and saw this big branch of cedar hanging there that I brought in from my home. The name just made sense."
