About this experience

SOLD OUT. Dahooja, Weyt-kp, Hadih! We invite your classroom to join Secwépemc (Shuswap) interpreters live from their home near Mountain House, on the Cariboo Waggon Road, aka the Gold Rush Trail. This session is broadcast from Cmetēm (Deep Creek) in the territory of Xatśūll First Nation (Soda Creek Indian Band). Share in stories and cultural practices. Learn perspectives of the gold rush and beyond from the original peoples of the land. Students can ask questions and participate in discussion of Canada’s path to Reconciliation. This session is only available to one classroom at a time, so your students can gather virtually to ask questions and interact with our hosts in real-time.

Duration: 60 minutes.
Availability: Weekdays at 9:00 am, 10:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 2:00 pm (PST)
