Friendship Centre Drum Song

The Friendship Centres of BC wanted to create and share a drum song which captures the values of the Friendship Centre Movement and that respects the diversities of the cultural beliefs of the members. Through the guidance of our membership, the Friendship Centre Drum Song was formed and is now available for viewing.
