The recent Grand Opening of the Cultural Healing Centre and naming ceremony was held which included 14 children and 1 adult performed by Pine Tree Chief Kanenrahkénia:te (Terry Sahanatien) and Iohate Sahanantien and Lucia Sahanatien.
Children were given names based on their individual characteristics while others were already given their name by family from birth.
Afterwards we heard author Lee Maracle whose message was about letting go of a painful past and embracing a future with strong cultural values and the importance of family. It was a historical moment for Wahta, thank-you to all who attended and to the staff and Cultural Centre Committee for their dedication, it was a great day. Click here for pictures and information.
