On April 22, the Kwi Awt Stelmexw and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, with support from the City of Vancouver, will host Voices of Elders a major reconciliation event at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre & Plaza.
With the Year of Reconciliation in 2014 came the acknowledgment that the city of Vancouver was founded on the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations and that these territories were never ceded through treaty, war, or surrender.
While Earth Day is a global event, the timely issue of reconciliation and shared environmental stewardship come together locally with Voices of the Elders.
