Honoring of Veterans Event Nov 2015
On November 11, there was a beautiful gathering at Somena Longhouse in Duncan.
Harold Joe, from the Cowichan First Nations, hosted an Honoring of Veterans, where many tribes came together to honor our veterans. A canoe and totem pole was carved to honor our veterans. We had many Snuneymuxw Families participating in the event.
Harold Joe had seen an Honoring of Veterans over in Vancouver at another Longhouse and he wanted to do this for our Veterans here on Vancouver Island. He set up meetings with the fellow tribes here on the Island, and everything all fell into place on November 11th.
This day was very uplifting to have our dear Veterans honored. Many were moved with pride for our great warriors.
