In honour of the over 1,200 missing and murdered Indigenous women, the Elbert Chartrand Friendship Centre - in collaboration with Sisters in Spirits and the Moose Hide Campaign - hosted a luncheon and walk on Thursday (Oct. 4). Community and family members came together to hear stories from grieving families, view presentations on some of the causes behind the tragedies, write messages to those murdered and missing, pray, and bring attention to the epidemic affecting our country. After the gathering, the group joined with signs, red ribbons, pictures of loved ones, and balloons, and took to Main Street to have the message be heard town wide.
