June 8, 2013 – Sacred Water Ceremony


June 8, 2013 - Sacred Water Ceremony

About five years before this photo was taken, we heard Prime Minister Harper’s apology for Canada’s policy of assimilation that set out “to kill the Indian in the child” in the Residential Schools. Now, funding for 15 healing centres created to respond to the trauma experienced by residential school survivors and of others impacted will cease December 2013. Reinstate the funding now. Let the sacred water wash you. As Mr. Harper stated in his apology, “this is a burden that we cannot and should not bear alone.”
