LETTER: Tse'k'wa Heritage Society looks for $300,000

PRRD Chairperson Sperling and Directors of the Board -  

I am writing today to request a resolution of support for our application to the NDIT cultural infrastructure program for our Tse'k'wa Cultural Centre Project. We are requesting a grant of $300,000 towards our total project budget of $1,178,000.

 The Society was established in 2013, a joint effort of Doig River First Nations, site and to share designated by Parks Canada as a National Historic site in 2015. The vision is for it to become a place where cultural understanding and relationships can be built between Treaty 8 First Nations, their neighbouring communities and visitors from around the world.

To achieve this vision, we developed the current site into a cultural centre with interpretive trails and programming which is open to the public. While the long term goal is for a purpose built facility, the current project utilizes existing infrastructure on site and with the first phases operational for the summer of 2021.

We are certain that our project aigns with many of the regions's 10 year Destination Development Plan, and will grow to become an anchor destination for visitors travelling along the Alaska Highway.

Other grants applied for to achieve our fundraising goals include the BC CERIP Destination Fund. Should you have further questions about the project or our society, I encourage you to reach out and contact me at gokker@doigriverfn.com
