Lower Post, BC: The Kaska Dena People
Vancouver Eastside Vineyard Church values First Nations peoples. We are particularly in love with the community of Lower Post, a Kaska Dena reservation on the BC/Yukon border that we have been visiting since 1995. You can get a sense of the relationship between our two communities by watching "A Healing Journey", a documentary on how Frances Carlick, an indigenous woman from Lower Post, found healing from the trauma of the Canadian residential school system through the Vancouver Eastside Vineyard church.
To understand these issues better, we recommend the CBC’s 4-part documentary, "The 8th Fire", about the relationship between indigenous people and the rest of Canada.
