Leading into Truth & Reconciliation Day on Sept. 30, Four Points Books will be hosting a speaker series to learn more about Columbia Valley’s Indigenous communities. 

Leaders from each community will provide a brief overview of their members, major initiatives, and the various ways they operate within the valley. The presentations will also discuss how “truth and reconciliation” resonates within local communities, followed by a Q&A session.  

The first event will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14, with Debra Fisher representing Metis Nation. The second part of the speaker series will be on Thursday, Sept. 28, with presentations from Mark Thomas, a representative of Chief and Council for the Shuswap Band, and Lillian Rose, a councillor for the Akisqnuk First Nation.  

There is no cost to attend and light refreshments will be served. Please visit for details and registration.
