Street signs go up in the Hul’qumi’num language

Chemainus intersections feature direct translations

In the lead-up to Chemainus Indigenous Peoples Weekend and Indigenous Peoples Day Monday, the Municipality of North Cowichan put up street signs in Chemainus.

The signs are direct translations from the Hul’qumi’num language and can be found throughout town.

Chemainus Indigenous Peoples Weekend festivities were all held on-line this year due to the pandemic, but people could pick up bannock and jam as a treat at the Salish Sea Market.
