We Won’t Be Silenced – Indigenous Lives Matter Rally

We invite everyone to join us for an Indigenous Lives Matter informative peaceful protest.

We will be addressing the issues Canadian Indigenous people face every day. All indigenous people; First Nation, Status, Métis and so fourth.

We are looking for speakers from the community. We want to hear your stories and help give this nation a better idea of who we are, our struggles, and what we need to see change. We also looking for drummers, and singer’s.

The Vision I had:

One day we as a people came together. We came together and we all had drum’s and we all were banging on those drums and we were singing our honor songs, and war crying. We all came together at the same time and we banged on that drum, and we let the world know that they didn’t kill the Indian, we are still here and we aren’t going anywhere.

I really want to use this time to break stereotypes. To let the world know we don’t get free stuff, and money. I want to give the world an idea of what it’s like growing up as residential school survivors. I want to give people an idea of what it’s like when we leave the reservation; loss of identity and loss of culture. I want to hear your struggles and what Canada can do to bring about reconciliation.

We need to let this country know that we are not afraid anymore and we will be herd!!!!

We will also be raffling off tickets for indigenous art. All proceeds will go to:

Tu-Kanatan Inc., a research and consulting company whose sole purpose is to assess and address the water and housing infrastructure on First Nations reserves here in Alberta and eventually across Canada.

This woman is fighting for clean water on reservations in Alberta and eventually Canada. She needs money to buy a water testing machine and water testing trucks. The government is not funding this. She is doing this on her own. For all of you grand kids out their. This is a Kokum trying to help our communities to have better water for our future!!!

If you would like to donate money to help get clean drinking water on reservations please contact her. All my relations
