Learn about First Nations history

This year Riverboat Days will gives people a chance to walk around town and learn about First Nations history.

Take a walk around town at Riverboat Days and learn about First Nations history.

In a change from the historical walking tours of past years, local Tsimshian history is the focus in the walk which will begin at Brolly Square and go for an hour or two out to the old Skeena bridge.

Devin Russell, the First Nations liaison at Heritage Park Museum for the summer, will be guiding the tour along with museum curator Kelsey Wiebe.

It’s going to be new and exciting and I think people are going to learn a lot,” says Russell, adding that he has a general understanding of First Nations history but is learning a lot about Tsimshian history that he didn’t know.

The tour will also include traditional place names and stories of First Nations people who lived in the Terrace area.

Water provided. Please wear appropriate shoes and clothing for walking.

Tour participants meet at Brolly Square at 7 pm. July 31.
