July 1st March from shishalh Nation to Hackett Park
The march through the shíshálh Nation, on July 1st has been opened to the greater Sechelt community and the march route has been extended.
Following today’s announcement from the province, that large outdoor gatherings will be allowed as of Thursday, shíshálh council representatives and the District of Sechelt council representatives planned a march that would bring the shíshálh community and Sechelt community members together for a walk. Organizers are hoping people will wear the colour orange to show support for all Residential School survivors and to honour the children whose unmarked graves were found at the former Kamloops Residential School and those at Cowessess.
Marchers will gather at the Grieving Mother statue, behind the shíshálh government administration building at 11 a.m. on Thursday and proceed along xweus to memmiman and then down swiykals to the waterfront, through friendship park and down to Trail Avenue to Hackett Park.
