ABOUT B.C. ELDERS' GATHERING

B.C. ELDERS GATHERING HOSTED BY COWICHAN TRIBES

The 42nd Annual Elders’ Gathering

Cowichan Tribes is honoured to be hosting the 42nd Annual BC Elders Gathering on our traditional territory. The event takes place on July 10, 11, and 12, 2018, at the Island Savings Centre in Duncan, BC. This year’s reigning King and Queen, Ed and Juanita Elliott, are looking forward to welcoming Elders from First Nations throughout BC.

We hope you enjoy yourselves during these three days. We look forward to watching everyone connect with one another while gaining inspiration in your roles as Elders. Cowichan Tribes encourages all attendees to share their wisdom, culture, and history. There will be a full schedule of activities based on our theme: ‘I tst ‘o’ hwun’ ‘I (We are still here).
