The University Hospital of Northern BC (UHNBC) has unveiled a new welcome sign depicting the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh.
‘Community Hearts’ has been a project since 2015, part of on-going reconciliation between the City, the Hospital, and the Host First Nation.
“I would say in the last 10 years or so, people are now starting to respect that and to honour that this is the unceded traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh, and that’s important to me and the community.”
– Lheidli T’enneh Health Director Louella Nome
Completed by Metis artist Carla Joseph, the paint is described as a community coming together and welcoming everyone.
