On the late afternoon of March 5 several of Seabird Island’s Youth went on an adventure to the beautiful Fraser River.

The location was green, beautiful and full of cedar trees.

The perfect spot for a BBQ and an evening of storytelling. Joined by the Elders, Youth cooked hotdogs and s’mores by a campfire before the stories began.

There will be fond memories.

It was a great thing to see. Everyone was laughing and smiling and having a good time, by the looks of it the Elders were having a great time with the Youth.

The night finished with stories from Elders. As Youth listened intently, Elder Maize Peters told the story of her grandson and his girlfriend’s encounter with Bigfoot one day on the mountainside.
