PRAS wishes to thank the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve for hosting many of the Cultural Heritage Festival events at the Kwisitis Visitor Centre. We were very honoured to have Barbara Touchie and Vi Mundy, Ucluelet First Nation, share memories and thoughts about their family regalia headdress and other artifacts at Kwisitis.
We would also like to thank all the people who participated in the festival. It would not have been such a success without your involvement especially to the committee who made this festival come into fruition: Vi Mundy, Mark Penney, Signey Cohen, Elgin Ambrose and Jacqueline Chamberland. With every festival there are strong volunteers, Jennifer Kidd, Eileen Floody, Greg Blanchette, Allison Tremain, Mary-Ellen Nicol and Dolores Baswick, thank you for all of your hard work.
The Pacific Rim Arts Society would like to thank all grant providers: The Lea and Theo Koerner Foundation, BC Arts Council, BC Gaming, District of Ucluelet, District of Tofino, and Clayoquot Biosphere Trust. We would also like to acknowledge our supporters and local businesses, Tourism Tofino, Tourism Ucluelet, Mark Penney Gallery, Cedar House Gallery, House of Himwista, Reflecting Spirit Gallery, Black Rock Oceanfront Resort, Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, Atleo Air, Whiskey Landing Lodge, Jamie’s Rainforest Inn, Wild Side Grill, Tuff Beans, Co-op Grocery store, Officials Sports Lounge, and Tofino Legion.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the events! See you next year!
