Nass Valley RCMP raise Nisga’a flag

A flag-raising ceremony was held in the Nass Valley this week where the Nisga'a flag was raised outside the RCMP detachment there.

A ceremony was held at the Lisims Nass Valley RCMP detachment this week to raise the Nisga’a flag.

Detachment commander Sgt. Donovan TAIT and NLG Chairperson of the Council of Elders Shirley Morven raised the Nisga’a Flag on December 19, 2012 to symbolize a strengthening relationship between RCMP staff there and the Nisga’a Nation.

“We (RCMP) have waited a long time for this and again, this is cutting edge stuff for RCMP internally.” said Sgt. Tait in a press release issued this week.  “We are excited and proud to be able to show our respect for the Nation this way.”

After a short blessing, Sigidim-nak’ Angaye’e commended Sgt. TAIT and his staff for their ongoing commitment to fostering an effective and respectful relationship with the Nisga’a Nation, said the release.

Sgt. TAIT and Sigidim-nak‘ Angaye’e then proudly raised the flag together.

This is the second Nass Valley RCMP-led event this year intended to demonstrate commitment to the inclusion and understanding of Nisga’a culture in their policing initiatives.

Earlier this year, a piece of art was unveiled at the detachment in the same spirit.
