Annual BC Elders Gathering
Recently, about 4,000 Aboriginal Elders met for the 39th Annual BC Elders Gathering. Hosted by Tsawout First Nation at the Panorama Recreation Centre in Saanichton, the three-day Gathering offered the opportunity to share stories, hear history and celebrate the keepers of the many aboriginal cultures that make up the landscape of BC.
Sincerity, good hearts and strong minds have kept the Elders very keenly involved in the many issues of justice for their people throughout British Columbia.
