After the deaths of three people at Shannon Falls this month, the Squamish First Nation and City of Squamish are planning a traditional cleansing ceremony. During the cleansing ceremony, the Squamish Nation will pray for the victims. The ceremony will repair the sacredness of the falls. The Squamish First Nation plans to partner with the District of Squamish and B.C. Parks to educate visitors about the risks in Squamish-based provincial parks and their traditional significance.
