From June 27th to 29th, for the fifth time in as many years, there will be a walk in northeastern Alberta….
“This year we gather for the final Athabasca region Healing Walk. We do this not because the problem has been solved, or because justice has been served, or practices of honour and integrity have been taken up in the place of destruction and mistreatment. We do this not because our people have stopped dying from the chemicals that are now inextricable from the landscape. Rather, we do this because the story of the Athabasca region is only one small piece of the immense scope of this issue, these practices, of the land that’s being abused, and of the people who are being so brutally mistreated.”
