What Is A Tetla?

The tetla is like a new kind of currency for a new economy. It is being used by a social movement that has already built a new economy in the midst of the old. It is an economy focused on local community, inspired by ancient traditions of the Coast Salish people and implemented using innovative economic ideas we developed while doing this project.
The tetla economy is more sustainable, more resilient, more prosperous, more accessible and more fair than the old economy.
Tetlas are a kind of gift certificate that can be redeemed at multiple businesses. 
Here are pictures of some of the different types of tetla gift certificates currently in use:
