Day of Sucwentwécw: Fox’s Journey of Well-Becoming

Each year on April 7th, the Aboriginal Department at SD73 writes a children’s book to honour the Day of Sucwentwécw and celebrate Indigenous People residing within the Secwépemc Territory. The Day of the Sucwentwécw means “Acknowledging One Another.” This year’s theme, “Well Becoming Through Emotional, Physical, Intellectual and Spiritual Indigenous Values” is being told by the book, Fox’s Journey of Well-Becoming, written by Trudi Nielsen, a District Aboriginal Elementary Resource Teacher and member of the Syilx Nation, and illustrated by George Ignace, a member of the Skeetchestn Indian Band. Visit the SD73 website to learn more about this day and the book, or watch a reading of the story by the author herself.
