A Snuneymuxw leader will tie together spirituality, the environment and reconciliation as a special guest at a fundraising gala for the Bethlehem Centre.

The retreat centre on Arbot Road is hosting A Defining Moment: Spirituality and the Environment in the Age of Reconciliation on June 22, featuring a talk by Snuneymuxw Coun. Douglas White III, director of the Centre for Pre-Confederation Treaties and Reconciliation at Vancouver Island University.

“The former Snuneymuxw chief has a passion for initiating the necessary actions needed to globally sustain the next seven generations,” noted an event press release. “With his far-reaching vision through the clarity of the present moment, White will lead gala attendees through engaging story and reflections on the topic of indigenous people within society and the country as seen through the lens of spirituality and the environment.”

In addition to the the talk, the fundraising gala will include dinner, dessert and music, and there will be a cash bar and a silent auction. Tickets are $125 or $65 for just the evening program, and patrons can add accommodations for the night for an extra $90.
