Noted Canadian leaders gathered at the Williams Lake Boys and Girls Club on Saturday to offer a Dream Catchers Workshop for youth.
Artist Nick Huard says from the event, they will be taking with the dreamcatchers youth made to built a huge one that will displaced in Prince Edward Island.
“One was to accept more refugees, more comprehension. Some have personal dreams to become surgeons, lawyers. It’s great. It’s great to hear them, to see how informed they are.”
Huard says in his days they didn’t know anything about politics and that now with multimedia and television youth are more aware of the global situation.
He says the dreamcatchers which represent the dreams of the youth of Canada will be displaced for 1 year at the Confederation Centre of the Arts.
He says he would love to see it go to Ottawa so politicians are reminded how the decisions they make affect youth which are the country’s future.
“This a unification of First Nations and the rest of Canada. We’re showing our culture, we’re teaching it. That should of been done 150 years ago.”
