With signs and drums in hand, members of Nak’azdli Band in Fort St. James were ready to walk.

“It’s for our future, our children’s future,”    Kecia Prince, co-organizer of the event said.

About 20 members, young and old came together to protest the use and selling of drugs in Fort St. James on July 21.

“It’s all about raising awareness about drugs and drug dealers in our community. This has to stop,” We don’t want this any longer. We’ve had enough,” Prince said.

But this is only the beginning.

Members of the band are now ready to dedicate more time in dealing with the issue of drugs in their community.

“It all started with one member who came up with the idea of a walk. But this is just the start. We look forward to more events in the future,” Prince said.

“This is all about our future.”
