A magical evening afloat for Heiltsuk Nation
A glorious sun drenched evening on Cusheon Lake brought paddlers – and swimmers – out to hear the sweet tunes of Yael Wand and the legendary Bill Henderson (Chiliwack, UHF). Kwakiutl elder Christine Hunt opened the event to thank people for their support of her Heiltsuk relatives, and by calling for a minute of silence to honour children killed at residential ‘schools’.
The event raised $8k thanks to generous donors & a matching funds contributor. Look for more Floating Concerts in Victoria, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, or organize one in your town! https://raventrust.com/paddle
