Annual Walk Seeks to Stop Bullying and Violence
THUNDER BAY – A group of walkers from KI First Nation completed a walk from Sioux Lookout to Thunder Bay. The walkers are seeking to raise awareness of the issues of bullying and violence. The walk is an annual event to remember Josh Nanokeesic, who was killed as a result of bullying in his community.
Violence, and bullying is an issue that concerns many people across Northwestern Ontario.
The journey has been difficult as it raised memories of Josh but the friends and family and supporters feel it is key to keep the issues of violence in the communities at the forefront of the discussion.
