Aboriginal elders to help share culture

A local aboriginal initiative will receive a chunk of the Columbia Basin Trust’s Social Program grants.

The Circle of Indigenous Nations Society (COINS) will use the funding for a project to bring 15 West Kootenay elders together for four days of cultural sharing and learning with families and their communities in June.

Executive Director Kris Taks says  the elders will come from different communities across the region and gather in Nakusp.

Taks says there is a growing demand in the region for services like this.
