No filmmaking workshops today since the Bella Bella community was a little busy.
All the magic happened in the Community Hall since
it was raining so hard that no one could dance on the Breakwater.
|Design by Heiltsuk artist, KC (last name to come soon)|
|Heiltsuk Nation Right & Title signs!|
|Support for true Truth & Reconciliation|
|Our World filmmaker alumni, Natalia, holds a drum made by her Grandmother for this occasion!|
|Natalia will drum and sing and Latoya will dance today! Latoya will work on a film this year.|
|Our World documents the events just in case a young filmmaker needs some of the footage|
|Everyone waited 2 and 1/2 hours but soon the guests of honour arrive....|
|Media frenzy for the Duke and Duchess as they greet Hereditary Chiefs|
|The community also welcomes Jodi Wilson-Raybould - Minister of Justice|
(although the community was not so kind to Premiere Christy Clark - she got booed)
|Latoya (right) after dancing|
|Beautiful blankets and cedar hats!|
|Nadia (will work on a film this year) and Michelle (Language Teacher) leave the dance floor|
|Heiltsuk Hereditary Chiefs seated in a place of honour|

|The Duchess spikes the camera!|
|Chief Marilyn Slett gives an inspiring and touching speech|
