Event Description

Recognizing the need to create meaningful relationships with where we live, Dragon Walk events are an opportunity to engage community in joyous celebration of the ecological diversity found in and around Little Mountain / Cambie Corridor. Civic engagement fostered through fun, relevant activities is the basis of a healthy, empowered society where folks have agency.  Let's celebrate these supernatural, unceded yet shared Coast Salish lands!

>>>>> Why dragon stories?

Dragons are cool because: they capture the imagination; they evoke ancient and humbling geological processes such as volcanoes; they are pan-cultural.

Wendy Charbonneau (Squamish Elder) will share the story of Sínulhka, a massive two-headed serpent that, according to local folklore once roamed up and down the coast and Xwechtáal, a brave young hero.

Naomi Steinberg stands by the power of storytelling for community engagement and ecological health. She is excited to curate and MC this dragon themed evening for you! She will also be sharing a Jewish story from Iraqui Kurdistan which includes a dragon with crocus coloured eyes...

By the way, did you know Queen Elizabeth Park used to be a volcano?
