Indigenous Showcase | Indian Horse & Guest Speaker Greg Hopf (19+)

September 6 @ 5:45 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us in ReconciliACTION through lights, camera, and… action! Experience an evening of Indigenous arts & culture, featuring Indigenous artisans, live music, food, and wine, as well as storytelling through film and speakers!

International Guest Speaker & Emcee:

Learn about today’s world in Indigenous Tourism with Greg Hopf! Followed by a selection of tourism-based shorts & Q&A session.

30 min. Intermission:

Enjoy lively tunes by Duane Marchand, explore hand-beaded creations by Sharon Hopf (Heart to Hand Creations), artwork by David Wilson Sookenakin, and North Okanagan Apparel’s pre-sale Orange T-shirts. Make your way to the concession to delight in the flavours of  Salsational Salsa, Bannock from Kekuli Cafe & selections from Indigenous World Winery!  

Feature Film:

Indian Horse, an adaptation of Richard Wagamese’s award-winning novel, will be followed by a Q&A facilitated by Greg. 

**Indian Horse contains sensitive topics and could cause emotional triggers for some viewers. Though education is an integral part of reconciliation, we understand that everyone is not in the same position of healing. Please take this into consideration.**

The evening will conclude with one last chance to visit the artisans. We hope to see you there!

Doors Open at 5:45 PM, Show Starts at 6:15 PM, Event Closes at 10 PM
