CORRECTION: Ms Liz Lazzarotto, a teacher at John Field Elementary School, asked Maggie Carew to conduct a historic walking tour of Old town for her French Immersion class.

We borrowed costumes from Hazelton Area Theatre Society.

Beginning at the Nose Like Coho totem pole, to acknowledge the fact that the Gitxsan were here first, we walked around the village, stopping at points of interest and telling stories about the riverboat days, the great flood of 1936, and other incidents in local history.

Afterwards we went into the Museum to view the artefacts and photographs on display.

The students were fascinated by the stories, and are now enthusiastically at work researching local history in more detail.
