New Zealand Delegation Visits Canada

Kw’umut Lelum and Snuneymuxw were honoured to host a delegation from New Zealand that included Minister Tracey Martin and high commissioner to Canada Daniel Mellsop. The Minister was on an education tour across Canada to learn about how best practices for Indigenous children in care. She was interested to meet with KL to see how Indigenous communities can be empowered to take back responsibility for caring for their children and prevent children from coming into care.

Following the meeting, the delegation was taken to the Snuneymuxw big house where they were honoured with ceremony. During a shared meal, Kw’umut’s canoe family youth performed songs and dances for the assemble staff and honoured guests.
