There will also be a Potluck Feast at the shíshálh Longhouse Fri June 21st 5:30 pm to celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day.
For those who are new to syiyaya:
The syiyaya Reconciliation Movement is a local movement for all peoples living within the shíshálh homelands, connecting with broader movements towards reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. It is a joint initiative between Indigenous and non-Indigenous residents of the Sunshine Coast, offering a local response to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action, inspired by and dedicated to the Survivors of Indian Residential Schools, including Day Scholars. The Movement was launched at the shíshálh Longhouse in April 2018 by co-chairs ?akista xaxanak Garry Feschuk, former Chief of shíshálh Nation, and Cam Reid, former mayor of Sechelt. Our goal is to create collaborative projects that build relationships and dialogue on the journey towards reconciliation.
