Sisters in Spirit - Oct 4, 2016

posted Oct 2, 2016, 6:58 AM by Gail Sawatzky
This Ceremonial Gathering is to honour the families of our grandmothers, mothers, sisters, daughters, and relatives who have been stolen from us or are still missing. We are bringing ceremonial justice to Treaty 4 for our relatives to gather in a safe space to heal and share their stories. This is #CeremonialJustice for our families, communities, and Nations.

This is a community grassroots initiative and therefore is supported by community. We do not ask for monies from corporations, goverments, or any entity that is related to the destruction of our lands. Violence on our lands is violence on our bodies and Indigenous women.

Itinierary:

5:00pm: Men's and Women's Traditional Pipe
Ceremony.
"Traditional Teachings on Grief, 
Grieving, Life and Death" with 
Knowledge Keeper Harry Francis.

6:00pm: Candlelight Vigil 
Speakers
In lieu of the saying the names of our 
missing and stolen women and girls, 
out of respect for families, we will have
traditional women singers each singing 
a song to the four directions for our 
families.

7:00pm: Community Sharing and supper.
Donations of food are greatly 
appreciated.
