Honouring Murdered & Missing Indigenous Peoples

Wednesday, Feb. 14 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Commemorating Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women, Men, Two-spirit gender , Trans, Gender-non-conforming and Non-binary people in our Indigenous community. Traditionally, before colonization, Indigenous communities recognized more than 5 genders and they were considered sacred. Through colonization Two-spirit gender, Trans, Gender-non-conforming and non-binary persons also experienced genocide leading to their invisibleness in today’s society.

This event will begin with a march from Springer Market Square to the Sir JAM statue, followed by speeches. Wear red if possible. Indigenous peoples are welcome to wear ribbon skirts/shirts. Bring #STOP KILLING US posters on red if possible.
