Reconciliation Flag raised at KPU Surrey

Fri, Sep 8, 2023

The KPU community came together Thursday morning to witness the raising of the Reconciliation Flag in the courtyard at KPU Surrey.

Dr. Alan Davis, KPU President and Vice-Chancellor, was joined by Elder in Residence Lekeyten, and the daughter of orange shirt artist Sylvia Simpson, in raising the flag in front of university staff, administration, faculty, and students.

The flag celebrates and recognizes the resiliency of Indigenous communities, and is a visual reminder for KPU employees and students to reflect on their learning journey, to engage in courageous dialogue, and to build trusting relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples and their communities.

The Sept. 7 ceremony also included bannock and other snacks, and a performance by the Wild Moccasin Dancers.
