The walkers are seeking to raise awareness for the cause of murdered and missing people, including the students who never made it home from Residential School.

Taylor says that while there is a lot of attention to the cause of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, the issue is far larger and must include men and the students from Residential School too.
