Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized to the Tsilhqot'in community for the hanging of six chiefs during the so-called Chilcotin War more than 150 years ago. The apology came during an emotional ceremony with hundreds of the First Nation's members in British Columbia's central Interior. Chief Joe Alphonse, tribal chairman of the Tsilhqot'in Nation, was significant because it was made directly to the community.
