The Coalition celebrated the creation of an Aboriginal Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) last Wednesday. Chiefs and band representatives from across the Island gathered at the Esquimalt Big House to demonstrate collective support for ACEH.

In attendance at the event were representatives from the traditional territories of the Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Kwakwaka’wakw peoples. As part of the celebration, a drum was signed as a gesture of support and willingness to engage in a dialogue about solutions and common goals.

Here are a few photos of the momentous occasion:
