Commemoration of the 340th Anniversary of the Great Falls Massacre
Join the Nolumbeka Project for a Day of Remembrance to honor 12,000 years of Native culture and history at The Great Falls (Peskeompskut). We are allowing time for visitors to tour this battlefield area near what was once Great Falls (Peskeompskut) for personal reflection and historic perspective. Ceremony begins at 1 pm. Key ingredients of the day will include Elder Teachings by Native American Grandmothers Jeorgina Laroque and Nancy Andry, a look back to the lasting significance of the Reconciliation Ceremony, guest speakers, musical offerings, and special tributes to Monique Fordham and George Nelson. For more information about the day please visit the Nolumbeka Project website here.
