Student should be recognized

Haley Regan is a member of the Penticton Indian Band and welcomed the students to the traditional territory of the Okanagan People

 

On Nov. 7, Joe Fries wrote an article in the Penticton Western News about the students from Princess Margaret Secondary School recognizing Remembrance Day at Skaha Lake Park.

I would like to add that there was a brief mention that there was “a short speech from another student”  Haley Regan is a member of the Penticton Indian Band and welcomed the students to the traditional territory of the Okanagan People.

Haley is a Grade 10 student and has done the traditional welcome in both English and N’syilxcen for two years.  She also highlighted the Aboriginal contributions to military efforts around the world. I would like to acknowledge her continued representation and leadership as a young Okanagan role model for this ceremony.
