Hundreds of Nisga’a reunite in Nass Valley homecoming

APTN National News
The Nisga’a are scattered across the world. Of over 600,000 members, only 2,000 live in the Nisga’a homeland, in the Nass Valley of northern British Columbia.

But for a few days, that was no longer true.

More than five hundred Nisga’a returned to the Nass Valley as part of an organized homecoming, some for the first time. Many had been taken away by residential schools, and hadn’t returned to the valley until now.

APTN National News reporter Rob Smith tells the story of one of Canada’s largest family reunions.
