... to everyone who came to the DEEP ROOTS LISTENING PARTY / LAUNCH last night at Klahoose. Stay tuned to CKTZ 89.5 to hear Season 2!** your dancing, feasting, singing, drumming, laughing, and encouragement all helped us CELEBRATE !
The Deep Roots initiative wouldn't be possible without Jacqueline Mathieu and her coordination work with Klahoose community members.
A bg thank you to her! She has natural collaboration skills and always is thinking of her community and how to do what is best, and how to do it right]
Thank you to Chief Peacey and Council for having the insight and perception to name her to this
role.. which started as a volunteer position and has grown to be the foundation for great stories.
Jacqueline truly aims for the good path in every single conversation, interaction, connection.
We can all learn from this.
E'mote-thank you- to the Klahoose voices... who truly guided this season's stories...
Thank you to Deep Roots Steering Committee
FOCI, CKTZ, Cortes Museum+Archives all had representatives who supported the process,
Chaired by David Rousseau, who does so many good things.
Sponsors- beyond financial support, donors give us the gift of encouragement...**
Our largest sponsor is the Community Radio Fund of Canada... for both seasons.
...and the smallest donation is sometimes the most encouraging if it comes from our neighbours..
We have 3 anonymous donors from Cortes community...and 1 from Quadra Island.
Season 1 we had Tides Canada support through Victoria Foundation and FOCI,
Season 2~ Canada 150 support brought to us by Cortes Museum and Archives; Literacy Now, and Cortes Community Forest Coop also generously donated.
...this community collaboration between Klahoose First Nation and CKTZ also thanks our listeners!
We hope you enjoy season 2!
