COWICHAN TRIBES HOSTING

The 42nd Annual Elder’s Gathering

Cowichan Tribes is honoured to be hosting the 42nd Annual BC Elders Gathering on our traditional territory, 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 as you connect with one another and gain inspiration in your roles as Elders to share your 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).
