Vigil to Sacred Site

What a day! It was a multifaith, ethnically diverse gathering united in our view that spiritually and scientifically rich sites like St. Mungos – or Glenrose or other sacred/archeological sites along the Fraser River foreshore – must not be paved.

 

Thanks to Rick Green, the event’s co-organizer, for the fabulous photos. Thanks to Desmond and Victor Guerin (Musqueam First Nation), Bertha Williams (Tsawwassen First Nation), Chief Capilano (Squamish First Nation), Chief Red Jacket (Turtle Island) and Michelle Morningstar Doherty (Turtle Island) for words of welcome (as the original landlords) and sharing the history and culture of first nations across North America.

 

Thanks to UBC’s Professor Matson, and to the international archeology community that is becoming increasingly active in helping to protect these sites from destruction.
