The Secret Path in motion at Highstreet

On January 13, Highstreet in Abbotsford is the venue for students from Robert Bateman Secondary to present their interpretation of The Secret Path, the Road to Reconciliation.

The school’s Fine Arts Program will present an evening of dance inspired by The Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie’s legacy project, The Secret Path. Students co-created a dance performance in response to Downie’s collection of songs narrating the story of Chanie Wenjack, a  12-year-old Aboriginal boy who ran away from his residential school in Ontario and never returned home.

The special public performance at Highstreet will feature keynote speaker Dr. Gwen Point; BCAFN Elder Representative, artist, leader and Chancellor of the University of the Fraser Valley. She holds a BEd from UBC, an MEd from the University of Portland, a Doctorate in Education from SFU, and an honorary doctorate from UVic. Point will offer insights into the struggles Aboriginal families face in the wake of residential schools, and how we can move forward together towards a positive and healthy future.
