Honouring Those who Struggle with Mental Health
A Pow Wow was held on June 28, 2019 at the Millenium Library to honor all Indigenous peoples who are healing from the abuse and trauma they suffered from the Indian Residential Schools. This Pow Wow also honors Indigenous peoples that were a part of the sixties scoop, those who were murdered and/or missing, incarcerated, suffering from poverty, and those that were displaced from their homelands.
