On March 28 David James Taylor, Missisauga Ojibway from Curve Lake First Nation, along with a group of people from various nations will begin a walk to Ottawa to bring awareness to the over 1200 murdered and missing Indigenous women in Canada. Their goal is to take their concerns to Parliament Hill and insist the Federal Government call for an inquiry into this issue.
The walk is designed to take approximately 4-5 months, weaving its way through communities across the country bringing awareness and creating a space for Aboriginal, and non-Aboriginal communities to build connections through sharing of stories, teachings, and culture.
The Walk will begin at 6am - Saturday March 28, 2015, at Mile ‘0’ in Beacon Hill Park, Victoria BC, with a Sunrise Ceremony conducted by members of Songhees, Ojibway, and Mohawk Territories. Everyone is welcome!
