New entrance installed at community graveyard

A new entrance has been installed at the Xatśūll community graveyard.
The project was long overdue, says Kúkpi7 Sheri Sellars.
“The new entrance is wider, making it easier for a service and pallbearers to make it through and the addition of the gate was important to us for spiritual reasons.”
The project was completed by the Xatśūll sawmill crew.
There was a bit of concern about getting it done this time of year with the cold and the snow but they were able to get the holes dug and the project done, says Craig Kennedy, a Forestry and Safety Consultant hired by the Band.
“It turned out really well. The guys did a good job. They used their carpentry skills from another project we did there to make it work. They designed it and they did a fabulous job.”
