Saik’uz and Settlers: A Weave of Local History

Saik’uz and Settlers: A Weave of Local History will be performed on the evenings of March 18 and 19 in the small auditorium at NVSS.

  • Mar. 12, 2011 7:00 p.m.

Saik’uz and Settlers:  A Weave of Local History will be performed on the evenings of March 18 and 19 in the small auditorium at NVSS.

This locally written and produced play is a culmination of the Spirit of Vanderhoof Diversity Project.  It is a celebration of the rich history of the people of the Nechako Valley.   Starting with the First Nations Dakelh people and weaving in the stories of the early pioneers that came to settle the valley, the play marches along the historical time-line.

Sometimes sad, sometimes happy, sprinkled with comedy and loaded with drama, the play promises to entertain and enlighten its audiences.

The play was written and is directed by Lisa Striegler.  The cast is made up of your friends and neighbours, coming together to share their talents on stage.  Tickets are $5 and are available at Wallace’s Studio and the Vanderhoof Department Store, with all proceeds from the production going to Neighbourlink.

Doors will open for Saik’uz and Settlers at 7 p.m.  Showtime:  7:30 p.m.

The Spirit of Vanderhoof Diversity Project promotes a welcoming and inclusive community, a community that embraces all of its residents in the social, cultural and economic life of the region.  For information about the project please check out the blog at http://goodneighbours.wordpress.com/.  The Diversity Project is a Good Neighbours Committee initiative, with funding provided by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia.
