PRINCE RUPERT, BC, Oct. 22, 2015 /CNW/ - A major solidarity rally to bring together hereditary chiefs, prominent leaders and community members from the entire Skeena corridor has been postponed because of other cultural gatherings happening in the region at the same time.

"We want to be inclusive and ensure full participation. Our members were very excited about this historic event and we understand its importance, so we will host it at a later date that will allow for greater participation."
