Hundreds of people are at Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park in Prince yesterday for National Aboriginal Day.
Among them was Brenda Wilson, who ended her over 700 km walk along the Highway of Tears Friday night.
She talked to the families of those with missing and murdered loved ones along the way, and will share all their stories in an upcoming book.
“They have hope that they’re going to be able to bring their loved one’s memory back into their communities and to hopefully find answers about what happened to their loved ones,” she says.
Focusing on the day itself, she says it’s great that people are celebrating indigenous culture.
“To see these little children dancing and just having so much fun, we want to keep it that way. We want to see these children dance, we want to see this happening in our communities.”
The park was full of live performances, food vendors, and events for kids like face painting.
