Sign Unveiling for the North Alouette Restoration Project
Katzie First nation would like to thank Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program for financially supporting the sign unveiling for our restoration work on the North Alouette River through a Community Engagement Grant.
An unexpected guest pays us a visit minutes before all our guests arrive.
We held a traditional sign unveiling ceremony to show our efforts towards restoring the site to how it once may have been and most importantly, acknowledging the significance to the land that our ancestors once walked on.
Traditional ceremonial blessing of the restoration site with a song from descendants of our ancestors that once used the area.
Thanking Dr. Mike Pearson, Biologist for all his training and support to the KDLP environmental team throughout the restoration work. Unfortunately, Kelly Squires, Biologist was not able to attend our event.
