St’at’imc Gathering  May 7th – 10th, 2011

“Spirit of the People”

A gathering in celebration and thanksgiving of the signing of the St’at’imc Declaration by the Chiefs of the St’at’imc Territory. We honor and appreciate the work initiated by our ancestors for our mutual benefit. As their descendants we will continue their efforts by working together as individuals, family members, community members, and St’at’imc at large. In the hands of the people, “Together is Better”.

– Quote by Elder Clara Shields
