Natsamat (togetherness) on National Aboriginal Day
 
Join us for National Aboriginal Day Celebrations hosted by the Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre, Mid Island Metis Nation and the Boys and Girls Club of Central Vancouver Island. Participate in a fun activity and add playful colour as we dream, discover and explore the question what does it mean to live on an island through an Indigenous lens and create a collaborative large scale mural of Vancouver Island. Hul'q'umi'num and language maps of BC will inspire our collective vision, as we imagine a new narrative for Canada 150 and beyond.
