Walking With Our Sisters is a commemoration honouring missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and Two-Spirit people through ceremony, community and reflection. It is rooted in the four principles of love, humility, protocol and volunteerism. Walking With Our Sister is guided by local Elders, and they encourage women to wear skirts if they feel comfortable doing so. Smudging (the burning of sage) will take place inside MSVU Art Gallery, cleansing the space for the Sisters. There will be no photography permitted at any time. Public figures and dignitaries are welcome to attend but there will be no public speakers.
