On National Indigenous Peoples Day (June 21, 2023) residents are invited to come celebrate, witness the blessing and raising of two welcome poles and honour the ancestral lands on which the Village is located.
The event will take place from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm within Peace Park and is being hosted by Dawn to Dawn Action on Homelessness Society
The welcome poles were created for the Ḵwax̱diz’dzas Cumberland Affordable Housing Project and will stand in the park until the completion of the Ḵwax̱diz’dzas project.
DługwayaX̱alis (Karver Everson ) & Aaqwasgem (Junior Henderson ) created these works of monumental beauty that speak to the beauty and resilience of a culture and people that have been the caretakers of the ‘land of plenty’ since time immemorial.
In preparation of raising the welcome poles, minor construction works will take place in Peace Park to install the required foundations. These works will occur between Monday June 12 and Monday June 19th, 2023Search again
