Súa and SEAS Trip

Eliza

Two weeks ago, we went to Dis’ju and it was the first time I went into that Big House. It was really amazing, especially knowing that we were the first youth group to be allowed into that Big House. We sang the Chief’s sons welcome first and it was pretty amazing. It was very cool seeing it from a different perspective.
