October 5, 2016 - The grade 11 Current Aboriginal Issues class participated in the 5th annual Sisters in Spirit day of commemoration in Sudbury. The day began at Tom Davies Square with mayor Brian Bigger proclaiming October 4th as Sisters in Spirit Day in Greater Sudbury, where we honour women and girls who were victims of violence and who are no longer with us.

The speeches were followed by an awareness march to N’Swakamok Native Friendship Center. While at the Friendship Center, the students heard some powerful stories and songs, they viewed the “Red Dress” campaign and enjoyed a traditional feast.

Teacher, Jennifer Petahtegoose says “Our students felt honoured to participate in this day, singing, drumming and carrying our school board’s eagle staff in the walk.”

Miigwetch to Lisa Osawamick, Aboriginal women's violence prevention co-ordinator with the Greater Sudbury Police Service, for allowing us to attend this day of commemoration and feeling part of the solution in raising awareness to this important issue.
