|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 2:00 pm, repeating until September 25, 2022


Recent events have forced all of us to face the fact that reconciliation with Indigenous Canadians is necessary. Education and personal connections are an obvious way to help achieve reconciliation. “Welcome to our swiya” provides our community an opportunity to learn about our shíshálh Nation neighbours, their history, struggles and aspirations in a uniquely Indigenous way. hiwus, known as Calvin Craigan to many of us, is a shíshálh elder, oral knowledge keeper, a hereditary chief of the shíshálh Nation and the youngest Indigenous chief ever elected in Canada. hiwus will tell us the story of the shíshálh people in four storytelling sessions in the shíshálh Nation Longhouse.
