Strawberry Ceremony Honours Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women
Event DateThursday, February 14, 2019 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm
The 14h Annual Strawberry Ceremony will be held on February 14th, 2019, the National Day of Action Honouring Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. While public attention to the issue continues to grow and the federal government has begun its inquiry, Indigenous women, girls, trans and two spirits continue to be murdered and go missing.
On February 14th we come together in solidarity with the women who started this vigil over 20 years ago in Vancouver's Downtown East Side, and with the marches and rallies that will be taking place across this land. We stand in defense of our lives and to demonstrate against the complicity of the state in the ongoing genocide of Indigenous women and the impunity of state institutions and actors (police, RCMP, coroners' offices, the courts, and an indifferent federal government) that prevents justice for all Indigenous peoples.
February 14th – 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.
