Open until June 10!

Well, everyone is accounted for. But the flight delay stranded us in Vancouver overnight. Stay safe everyone. We’re fine. But tired.

Update. Made it Victoria this morning after shuttling from the airport in Sydney. Some down time and lunch. Then the inner harbour. We missed our UVIC tour but may squeeze in a visit for those that really need to see it.

Glad you had good weather.

Zipping through tree tops today 🤪

Dear Sandspit families,
Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Dear parents,

There is an exciting opportunity during March Break for youth to learn the entire process of building a skin-on-frame kayak, and painting it with guidance from Guustlas (Trey Rorick). Kieran Wake and Guustlas will facilitate this 2-week workshop at the Haida Heritage Centre at Kay Llnagaay, in the canoe shed. They are inviting 4 committed youth to participate in this workshop!

There is absolutely no experience required - the majority of the work will be done with hand tools, and youth will leave the workshop feeling more confident about their abilities to construct and craft.

The workshop will start on Monday March 21st, and will run for roughly 6 hours per day, for both weeks of March Break (likely ending mid-week during the second week). There will be lots of fun/down-time for youth to take breaks - it won't be a stressful environment.

Youth have left these workshops in previous years with transformative experiences and memories - we hope to create long-lasting impacts on young people's sense of accomplishment, and their ability to connect to the land and to their community. The finished kayaks will live at local organizations including the Youth Centre, for all youth and families to access.

Please let Kieran know if your teen/child is interested - email riparian.banks@gmail.com or text 250-626-7835.

Haawa,

Julia Weder
