Bradley started the event off with a traditional welcome to the Lekwungen territory, where the event was held and shared a few words in his Lekwungen language. Bradley also walks us through a brief exercise passed down from one generation to the next and teaches us a song. Bradley Dick is Walas Kwagul, Lekwungen, Ditidaht First Nations, he is an independent artist, family man, and government employee. Cultural values are incorporated into every facet of his life, he also believes that cultural integrity is maintained through lived actions. Bradley actively affirms and reaffirms his cultural virtues and governance, and states that this is not reconciliation, however a centring of the cultural values balanced with the knowledge and strength of today.
