Q’ushin’tul
Walking together

On behalf of the Cowichan Campus Elders and administration, we would be honoured to have your attendance on Sept 29th for Orange Shirt Day. Join us for this special ceremony to honour and celebrate the lives of the children lost to residential school.

Join us for activities and a feast. We feast together because a feast is a cultural teaching and a way of healing. When we eat together, there are teachings. We can heal and learn together.
