Indigenous Walk of Fame

A filmmaker says Duncan, in the heart of Cowichan traditional territory, is an ideal place for a walk of fame celebrating Indigenous Canadian artists.

Steve Sxwithul’txw has written to Duncan City Council to ask for their support in making a city block into a walk of fame and brought the idea to council last night.

“What I quickly realized in working in the [film and television] industry and over a period of time, was that there was really no forum that was out there that could really acknowledge Indigenous talent,”

Odd location?

But why Duncan? Why not Toronto or Vancouver for the proposed walk?

Sxwithul’txw says it’s because Vancouver Island has produced more than its fair share of Indigenous talent for the film and television industry and because it serves as a regional hub, including for tourists.
