THUNDER BAY – LIVING – Isabel O’Kanese is walking across Canada to raise awareness on the issue of Lateral Violence.
“Miyo-wîcêhtowin Living In Harmony Together Walk and World Wide Smudge is for all people of Indigenous decent regardless of blood quantum to come together as one family. It’s time we heal as a group and stop the Lateral Violence amongst our peoples. Whether you are Metis, Status, Inuit, Non-status Indian or part of another Indigenous group, we are all family. We can still maintain and respect all our cultural differences. All Nations are invited to pray for the health and well being of our Indigenous people world wide. Today we pray all around Mother Earth, and ask for forgiveness for how we have treated one another. We pray collectively that we all heal each other, that our communities, families and each other are healthy once again. We pray we come back together as one,” states Isabel.
Stopping in at the NetNewsLedger studio, Amanda Perreault sat down with Isabel O’Kanese and Darlene Neekan to share on the issue of lateral violence.
