The University of Northern British Columbia’s Office of Indigenous Initiatives invites you to join in our Four Connections Summer Solstice celebration at 3:00 pm (PST) Thurs, June 17th.
We all have had a difficult year with constant changes so we are hosting the Four Connections Celebration Summer Solstice. The theme of the Summer Solstice is Land and Healing and is being presented in coordination with the Land Health and Healing event being hosted by Lheidli T'enneh. Hosted by Dr. Henry Harder, Vice-Provost of Indigenous Initiatives, Brandon Prince, Manager, Office of Indigenous Initiatives you are invited to share in an hour and a half of singing and storytelling along with some of our respected and loved Elders and guests including a presentation by Tina Fraser and musical performances from Marcel Gagnon and Ivan Paquette.
Elder Darlene McIntosh will conduct the Opening Ceremony. This will be followed by a live performance by Ivan Paquette, and a presentation from Dr. Tina Fraser on the importance of land and healing.
In appreciation for joining the Summer Solstice celebration, three draws will be made for two wonderful gift baskets and a gift card during the event.
