How cool was that?
VG4A Virtual Walk 2022
In a stroke of amazing good luck, while kicking off the 2022 Virtual Walk and its focus on the 94 Calls to Action of the Reconciliation Report, we bumped into Dr. Bird from Royal Roads University. He was working with a drone operator to make a film about the First Nations Story Pole in Beacon Hill Park. He treated us to a spontaneous talk about its history and importance in Kwakiutl culture. When it eventually decays, he told us, there are plans to lower it, and transport it to near Port Hardy where it will be displayed in its own cultural surroundings. What a brilliant start to our steps towards reconciliation! See upcoming events below to join this year's fundraising walk.
