First Nations celebrated at Royal Roads

Royal Roads University is putting on a celebration.

The Sneq’wa e’lun (Blue Heron House), located on the shores of Esquimalt Lagoon, plays host to a National Aboriginal Day event that includes an art show, a guided medicinal plant walk and canoe trips.

Members of the Royal Roads University’s Elder Circle representing the Xwsepsum (Esquimalt), Lkwungen (Songhees), Sciá’new (Beecher Bay), T’Sou-ke (Sooke) and Tsawaout First Nations, as well as the Métis Nation, will attend the free event this Friday (June 20).

The spotlight will be on the diverse cultures and achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in Canada.

The festivities go from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information visit royalroads.ca.
