Hla naahlx̱xw G̲anoonax̱xu’m: Gitxsan women’s gathering this Sunday

A celebration of Gitxsan women is being held this Sunday in Hazelton.

The event is called Breath of Our Grandmothers and is being held as a way to empower women.

Bridie O’Brien is one of the organizers of the event, and says it’s a reminder of the roles women play in Gitxsan society.

She says ignoring the traditionally strong role women have can lead to a number of negative impacts.

There’ll be a number of cultural events as well as talks about current issues impacting the local community.

The event is this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Gitanmaax Hall in Hazelton, shuttle bus service is also offered.
