Elders Visit Traditional Land at Blunden Harbour with Kwa’lilas Hotel Art Curator

A group of Gwa’sala Nakwaxda’xw elders took Kwa’lilas Hotel art curator, Shain Jackson, on a boat trip this week to Blunden Harbour. By going on the trip to their home land, Shain gained a deeper understanding of the history to make the cultural connection to the art work that is being created for Kwa’lilas Hotel. Big thanks to Shain for covering the trip and sharing the meaningful experience with our elders!
