Two local Indigenous Organizations; MIKI’SIW Métis Association and Indigenous Women’s Sharing Society are working together to host the “Comox Valley Spirit Walk” in downtown Courtenay on September 30th.
They are encouraging people who want to participate to wear orange to remember Indigenous children and families affected by Indian Residential ‘schools’ and other child apprehension programs.
Participants will register at Harmston Park – 6th Street & Harmston Ave to receive the map of the predetermined walking route.
Participants are asked to walk in small COVID friendly groups through route in downtown Courtenay
“In orange shirts and ribbon skirts, moccasins and a feather, we embrace the spirits of the ancestors, and we all walk together”
