This Saturday, the Survivors Totem Pole goes Up!
We are working full out over the last months to mobilize our Families, Friends and Communities to attend the Pole Raising Ceremony this Saturday, November 5, 2016 and with all the event preparations including printing t-shirts for volunteers, postering, organizing street closures, working with engineers on the totem pole base and more. We are preparing for feast, potlach gifts and ceremonies involving one hundred Matriarchs, Hereditary Chiefs, Elders and Witnesses in addition to last touches on the totem pole, which has been all-consuming and a labour of love. We hope that everyone who is Vancouver or the Lower Mainland, can attend:
10:45am - Watch strong people move totem out of carving studio at 33 West Cordova
11:30am - Hastings and Main Street shut down for procession
12:00pm - Survivors Totem enters Pigeon Park for Pole Raising Ceremony
With Peace and Solidarity.
