A benefit band performance for the homeless has been postponed indefinitely.

The Majagaleehl Nisga’a Concert Band announced today, March 3, that the event scheduled for this Sunday March 6th, will not be rescheduled at this time.

“Due to the recent deaths within the Nisga’a Nation, we must follow protocol and push this event to another more suitable time,” said Anthony Moore, Nisga’a Lisims Government lands officer, lands and resources.

“We will be looking at possible dates in the future to hold this event, but our cultural calendar does not provide many opportunities. At this time the Majagaleehl executives have decided to postpone this indefinitely.”

The event had first been scheduled for Feb. 20 but was also postponed due to a death.

“We thank you for your understanding in this matter and we hope for your continued support when the time comes to host this event,” said Moore.
