People of Place

Travel Blog & Reflections of Arielle Houghton


People of Place explores how people are formed by the place they live. Through personal inquiry and lived experience, I explore the far corners of British Columbia searching for insights on how we can develop a deeper understanding of the people of this province.


“In taking sides against others, you can forget that everyone’s positions are fluid-- and forcing someone to act as a partisan of an opposing side can trap them into identifying themselves with that side exclusively. Often it happens that a person adopts a position impulsively, but upon being attacked entrenches himself and defends it for the rest of his life.”
