Youth Workshop at KCLC

Thank you to the West Kootenay Regional Arts Council for providing funding to help pay for a workshop with students and staff of the Kootenay Columbia Learning Centre. Sheldon Louis and Csetkwe Fortier, both very skilled at working with youth led an art-making workshop about salmon in the Columbia River and what it meant and means for local indigenous cultures.
