Stetís ímexstowx: Walk Beside Us
September 30, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
We are so excited to announce the first Stetís ímexstowx Gathering! Stetís ímexstowx means “walk beside us” in the beautiful Halq’eméylem language.
Our local civic organizations have united around Thunderbird Square with a common goal – to create a space for learning and understanding. We’re walking together to share learning opportunities for the public about Truth and Reconciliation, as well as the history of Residential Schools.
Join us on this journey as we come together to build a deeper awareness of our roles in the path to Reconciliation.
