National Aboriginal Day goes on Wednesday

Preparations are underway for National Aboriginal Day in Powell River.

Hegus Clint Williams says it’s an important to mark the difficult times that elders went through and have a fun day to celebrate culture.

“We have 2 different celebrations happening. We have the one event that we host with School District 47 where we will meet at Willingdon Beach at about 9:15 AM, and once that’s done – that’s more focused on the school and educational component – we have the other event happening at our new Government House. That’s starting probably about 12:30.”

Williams says they also want to raise awareness about the services and supports that are available through Tla’amin.
