Details

Join in on the beach in Harrison and in the Memorial Hall for a  festival  honoring the relationship between the  Sts’ailes First Nations Community and the Village of Harrison Hot Springs,  and celebrating the heritage of the region with canoe races, a traditional Salmon BBQ, games, sharing and of course Sasquatch Lore.

Harrison Hot Springs has always been a center of Sasquatch activity and little wonder as the very word Sasquatch derives from the Sts’ailes word “Sa:sq’ets”  meaning ‘wild man’.   The Sasquatch is sacred to the Sts’ailes and as the symbol of their people it is only fitting that this celebration stick with the name given to this very popular event that last took place in 1938.

2019: This two-day event will begin at 9:00 am Saturday June 15th with a short procession to Harrison Lake Plaza where a welcoming ceremony will be held at 10:00.  Each day will feature artisan activity tables, medicine walks and opportunities for intercultural sharing.  Saturday morning the main event starts as war canoes gather for a friendly competition that will continue with final races on Sunday.  Of course, no canoe race is complete without a traditional salmon barbeque that will take place Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

The joint hosts for this event, Sts’ailes First Nations and the Village of Harrison Hot Springs, invite visitors to this unique event that brings two communities together in an opportunity to learn about the traditions of the Sts’ailes people and share cultural experiences.
