QayQayt-Sto:lo: New gathering place honours First Nations - The New Westminster campus of Douglas College now has another community amenity. On Jan. 19, the college hosted a two-part opening ceremony, complete with speeches from Lt.-Gov. Steven Point and Chief Rhonda Larrabee of the QayQayt Nation, celebration dances from the Douglas College student pow wow group, and opening and closing prayer songs from an elder from the Sto: lo First Nation. "From time immemorial, our lands have been a place of gathering," said Larrabee in her welcoming speech. "Our ancestors welcomed others to come together here: to fish, to hunt, to gather berries, to share stories and wisdom by the river, a gathering place, a resting place."
