Hello all,

This Thursday, September 30th at 6:30 p.m. please join the Vancouver Maritime Museum for a free virtual event, Paddles Up :: An Honour Guard for the Children – Celebrating the Rich Waterborne Culture of the Coast Salish Peoples.

September 30 is Orange Shirt Day. It’s also World Maritime Day and National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Paddles Up is in honour of these three days of recognition.

This event will be a panel discussion about the maritime time aspect of Indigenous history. Indigenous panelists will speak about Indigenous maritime culture and discuss how bodies of water like the Burrard Inlet are still used today by the Coast Salish people. The panelists will also discuss colonialism and its effects, particularly residential schools.

To learn more about the event, panelists, or to register please visit  https://vanmaritime.com/paddles-up-an-honour-guard-for-the-children/

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you there.
