As part of this celebration, the Centre is excited to welcome Haida storyteller Kung Jaadee, who will be sharing her published story, Raven's Feast, and the teachings that go along with it: each of us has a gift to share with the world, and we should also learn to love ourselves. Dressed in her traditional regalia, she uses her rattle, drum, and songs to enhance her stories, and teaches about the Haida language and her culture.

Other festive fun includes:

  • Holiday gifts with a personal twist! Make personalized greeting cards, try your hand
    at origami boat building, and bring your own tote bags or tea towels to decorate!
  • The River Flowing communcal art project. Help us decorate our Fraser River mural
