It starts with the truth!

Chief Clarence Louie is awarded the Freedom of the Municipality Award for his great contribution to Oliver’s native and non-native community! Congratulations!Opening ceremonies from the young Oysooyos Indian band drummers. I love the sound, it feels like life, like my heart beating.

The crowd listen, laughs and cheer as Chief Louie is introduced.

Mayor Hovanes presents the award to Chief Louie.

The truth has to be told, not his-story but our truth.

Please read the words.

Original treaties were for native and non-natives to work together. Let’s get back to business relationships.

Chief Louie is proud of his people and has lots of hope for the future of the young ones.
