DITIDAHT PADDLE DAYS

June 16th, 2015

On June 10th, Pacheedaht Youth workers took the children and some parents to the Truth and Reconciliation Paddle Days in Ditidaht. This was a day event full of canoe racing for the children and some adults. The students also participated in some fun filled and very interesting cultural workshops such as: Canoe crats, storytelling, cedar weaving and a traditional game of lahal. The community hosted a wonderful seafood dinner and some of the children participated in some cultural dancing and then went to have some fun at a modern dance before turning in for the night. Day 2 was an early rise and our children were at the beach for a morning prayer and on the water by 8am. Lets give them all a hand for their participation and their courage to be out in the cold water so early in the morning, for some it was their first time. Way to go:
