Yay it’s Friday!!!!

Today work took me to the Klahowya Village in Stanley Park.

The Klahowya Village is located in the middle of the park and is representative of the culture of the three First Nations communities that traditionally call Vancouver’s land home. We watched a live show (pictured), went on the Spirit Catcher mini-train and the Children’s Farm. It was a great day out and I would recommend it to visitors, families and day camps alike.

The man in the photo is Alex Wells (or Sisk’a Supisk) from Lil’wat Nation, one of the Four Host First Nations of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. He is a three-time World Champion of the Hoop Dance, a difficult and advanced dance style that tells the magical story of the creation of life.


5 Positives:

  1. Got my work week increased to 37.5 hours!
  2. Got a pay-cheque for June that I was not expecting (always a nice surprise).
  3. Went to Klahowya Village at Stanley Park.
  4. Had Indian Tacos for lunch (Venison chilli on fried bannock) YUM.
  5. Stew passed his course and is fully a qualified lifeguard / swimming instructor so he can work now!!!
