Spirit Walkers Arrive in Thunder Bay

THUNDER BAY – Almost forty Spirit Walkers arrived in Thunder Bay this afternoon completing much of the third annual walk. The walkers made their way today from Nipigon into Thunder Bay. The walkers were sunburnt, tired, and hungry as they enjoyed a meal and fellowship at Elevate on Cumberland Street in Thunder Bay.

On Saturday the Spirit Walkers will depart from City Hall in Thunder Bay up to the Pow Wow at Fort William First Nation.
