At this time of the year, we like to look back at some of the events that Plenty Canada participated in and some of the projects we worked on locally, regionally, nationally and globally and which brought us further to our goal of reconciliation of the earth and reconciliation of the peoples who live upon the land.
Here are some of the highlights of Plenty Canada’s work in 2016:
Tribal Park Gathering 2016
