Our House of Clans – Ground Breaking!
We are now under construction! See below to read the full press release for the ground breaking of Our House of Clans, with quotes from shishalh Nation Chief Warren Paull, Attorney General and Minister of Housing David Eby, Minister of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation Murray Rankin, and MLA Nicholas Simons.
“This project serves as both a powerful reminder of a difficult past and of hope for a brighter future,” said Attorney General David Eby, Minister responsible for Housing. “Although a project like this falls under federal responsibility, the Federal government’s ongoing neglect and delay related to on-reserve housing in our province is an embarrassment for British Columbians and a barrier to reconciliation. We have to act. Our government is proud to partner with the shíshálh Nation to make Our House of Clans a reality.” Chief (hiwus) Warren Paull concurred that “Our House of Clans is a significant milestone for our Nation. It is a project that demonstrates what can be accomplished for our people when all parties choose to work together toward the shared goal of reconciliation, safety and care for our Elders and most vulnerable.”
