Time: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm (come and go)

Activities Include:

  1. Art Activity with Artist in Residence: Cheryl Ring: Participate in an engaging hands-on art activity. You will leave with a keepsake created in honour and memory of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit people in Canada.
  2. Explore the Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada Map: View Canada from a different perspective, and learn about the far-reaching impacts of MMIWG2S in Canada.
  3. Visit the Place of Reflection: The Place of Reflection is a stone medicine wheel created by artist Lyndon Tootoosis and conceptualized by Lori Whiteman as a place to reflect and honour Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. It is a place of potential reconciliation and hope for anyone who has experienced loss and grieving and would benefit from a place where they can draw strength and healing from the stone circle.
