Sisters in Spirit VigilOctober 4, 2018
A National Day to honor and raise awareness on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls #MMIWG.
Our vigil will be held in the Motyer-Fancy Theatre in the Purdy Crawford Centre for the Arts at 6:30 pm.
We will have speakers including an Elder who has experienced the loss of a sister, a woman who has survived trauma and another Elder who has experienced marriage to a non-Indigenous man and lost status because of it and how that made her a marginalized woman.
We will be singing and drumming and listening to these women share their deeply personal stories.
Tshirts will be on sale prior to the event (on sale now) for 20.00 and proceeds will go to starting a Student Food Bank for all students in need. Donations of non-perishable items or Femine Hygiene Products will be gratefully accepted.
