Fundraiser for ȽEL,TOS: an evening of art and gratitude

Dear Paddlers,

I hope this message finds you well.

This note is to invite you to a Tsawout Nation event (see attached poster) that will acknowledge those who took part in the Sept. 2 “Paddle for ȽEL,TOS,” and will also continue to raise funds for Tsawout’s legal efforts to reclaim James Island.

EVENT: Fundraiser for ȽEL,TOS: an evening of art and gratitude
DATE:   Thursday, November 29
TIME:    6:00pm
PLACE: Tsawout Nation – auditorium (7728 Tetayut Rd, Saanichton) 

W̱SÁNEĆ knowledge-holders will describe Tsawout’s historic and contemporary ownership of ȽEL,TOS, and will explore significant elements of Tsawout’s culture. An Indigenous vendors’ market will be set up (a great opportunity to get holiday shopping done, while supporting the local community), and video footage of the Sept 2 “Paddle for ȽEL,TOS” will be on display.

Bring cash for 50/50 tickets, “Paddle for ȽEL,TOS” posters, raffles and gift-basket draws. 100% of the profits (not including vendors’ market) will go to Tsawout’s legal claim. Tickets are by donation, starting at a minimum of $10. Suggested donations:

-student: $10
-professional: $100
firm or organization: $500
-FREE for WSANEC people!

It would greatly help our small volunteer team if you can share this information with your networks, and place the attached poster in your workplace (if appropriate) and community. There is also a Facebook event that we kindly ask you to join and share with your networks, friends and family:

All the very best,
