The Lakes District campus of the College of New Caledonia held daily events last week to celebrate Aboriginal history week. Events included an introduction to rights of passage by elders, history of Nedut’en people, drumming and a bannock mania contest. Stewart Phillip, Grand Chief of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, was the keynote speaker of the event. He said he’s seen tremendous change over the past 40 years, but that there’s still plenty of challenges ahead for First Nations.
