First Nation delegates heading to China

 


Despite delays and setbacks, a group of First Nation delegates will be heading overseas to China.

The original plan to send 11 delegates, which would include dancers and drummers, to Jiaozuo City was announced in the summer but funding problems forced organizers to push the date back twice. Thunder Bay’s aboriginal liaison unit had wanted sponsors to help bring the delegates to China in order to attend an international Tai Chi festival to showcase aboriginal culture as well as formally cement a Sister Cities agreement with Jiaozuo.
