Taress Alexis (right) of the Sinixt organization Smumiem (“belongs to the women”) hands $1,000 to Catherine Fisher of Kootenay Co-op Radio. “We want to give back to KCR because they do so much for the community and for us. There is a lot of love there,” Alexis said.
“We are blown away by this,” Fisher said. “We did not expect it. It will be well spent.”
