Gisgug Migwite'lmatl ~ Day of Remembrance

Gisgug Migwite'lmatl

Grassroots NB acknowledges the land on which we will gather is the traditional unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq Peoples.

Beginning at Moncton's City Hall, we will walk to the Cathedral (226 St. George St). There, we will leave stuffed animals and little shoes on the Cathedral steps to remember the hundreds and hundreds of lost lives of children at the hands of Canada's Residential Schools.

"This event is to raise awareness and inviting all, including settler allies, whom are all welcome to show solidarity to Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc Kamloops 215 students children as young as 3 years old.

These 215 Indigenous children whom attended this catholic run Residential School, in BC never got to safely return home.

Their parents and grandparents, siblings and family never saw them again."

You are invited to bring children's shoes or a stuffed animal to leave on the steps of the Cathedral. (The little shoes will be donated to a charity of the community's choice.)

This event is also to remember Chantel Moore and Rodney Levi, who tragically and unnecessarily lost their lives at the hands of New Brunswick police, this month last year.

You are invited to wear yellow, gold, and rainbows to remember our beloved sister Chantel Moore.
You are invited to wear red to remember our beloved brother Rodney Levi.

Grassroots NB is raising funds for a Healing Walk in their memory. Funds will be for the medicinal services of elders from their traditional territories, with the remaining funds to be donated to Chantel Moore and Rodney Levi's justice funds.
