About this event

  • 2 hours

Join us for an evening of stories with Nathan Wilson, an indigenous storyteller who is a member of Tsawwassen First Nation. Nathan will share his indigenous heritage and cultural traditions as well as indigenous and geographical history of the local area. As the Delta School District’s indigenous cultural mentor, he specializes in sharing his culture with others in interactive and meaningful ways.

Note: This session is for mature audiences, however all respectful particpants are welcome. We hope to offer more sessions with Nathan throughout the year.
