Resonating Reconciliation: We Are Still Here

CJMPeople ended 2013 with great happiness as we celebrated and honoured Residential School Survivors and Tla’Amin community members at our Community Listening Celebration.

The celebration took place at the Tla’Amin Gym where we aired the documentary We Are Still Here after a ceremony of singing, drumming, gifting and cedar brushing. Our documentary is part of the Resonating Reconciliation Program with the National Community Radio Association.
