PCC MISSION MOMENTS : : Celebrating Indigenous Culture
Hummingbird Ministries is one of nine Presbyterian Indigenous ministries in Canada supported by gifts to Presbyterians Sharing. It is committed to bringing peace and healing to Indigenous families living in BC’s lower mainland. The ministry helps to restore hope by offering regular healing circles; working with the community in art and celebration; and providing educational and healing workshops, Bible studies, children’s art and music programs. Hummingbird Ministries also runs a children’s dance program in which Indigenous children are taught traditional Metis dances. Known as the Hummingbird Dancers, the children recently performed at a festival in East Vancouver in honor of National Indigenous Peoples Day, which recognized and celebrated the rich cultures of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in Canada.
