The Students Taking Action Against Racism event being organized for the Fort Forum, Fort St. James confirmed their musical guests last week.

Delhi to Dublin, a Vancouver-based group which does an eclectic electronic-based blend of world music, will be entertaining the crowd. The group was described by Hour Magazine as “the United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll.”

The group is not only multi-influenced and multi-ethnic, but they are incredibly hip too.

Speakers confirmed for the event will be Troy Payne, and Waneek Horn-Miller.

Payne is an inspirational speaker who came from a background of abuse, neglect and foster care.

Horn-Miller is the former co-captain of Canada’s Olympic Women’s Water Polo Team and a speaker on First Nations’ issues.

The S.T.A.A.R. conference will be taking place at the Fort Forum for students from Fort St. James, Vanderhoof, Fraser Lake, and seven First Nation communities in the area.

 

The event is the biggest of its kind ever done in the area. For more on this story,  see www.caledoniacourier.com.
