Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations Day 2016 - Parade & Opening Ceremony.
About 300 people walked and participated in our parade. Tla-o-qui-aht walked through Tofino alongside floats, waving our Tla-o-qui-aht flags, and handing out candy to little spectators. Afterwards, Tla-o-qui-aht convened on the Village Green, to do a traditional welcome, opening remarks and acknowledgements. The afternoon was filled with fresh BBQ Salmon, excellently prepared by Chef Dan from Jamie's Rainforest Inn, Cake complimentary of Parks Canada & Team, and even Cotton Candy!
Many thanks go out to our sponsors of this event. You all made this event possible, and really contributed to a historic day for the Tla-o-qui-aht Nation, in the heart of the Tla-o-qui-aht Territory.
