In Memory of Mel Beaton: Contributing to a Legacy of Reconciliation and Cultural Education

Those who knew Hammerco partner Mel Beaton knew of his commitment to service with many pro-bono hours dedicated to non-profit organizations, including Education Without Borders.

In recognition of Mel’s passion for giving back and supporting underprivileged and historically or systematically marginalized individuals, Hammerco Lawyers was honoured to create the Mel Beaton memorial donation to Education Without Borders. The funds are going towards a series of radio shows and podcasts aired on The Raven, which broadcasts from the Homalco First Nation on Vancouver Island.

The Raven follows a New Country Music format with a commitment to feature the Ayajuthem language and Indigenous cultural programming. The Ayajuthem language belongs to the Homalco, Klahoose, K’omoks and Tla’amin nations.

The series, called “Remember – Recordings of our Elders Explored,” features clips of recordings from local First Nations elders, which are explored and given a modern perspective by The Raven’s First Nations broadcasters. The podcast series is produced by Homalco First Nations members, featuring Host Tchadas Leo and team.

The first episode launches on Friday, September 30, 2022, National Truth and Reconciliation Day in Canada. We hope you will join us in listening to the series in the spirit of reconciliation and cultural education for the benefit of Canadian society. Each month, the series will feature a new episode and is available on every major podcast platform.
