As we continue to mourn the growing number of children being recovered from Indian Residential School sites across the country, we encourage all Listugujewaq to join our neighbors in Ugpi’ganjig and Campbellton for a solidarity march and ceremony. The march will take place on July 2nd, leaving Casino 88 at 5:15 pm and crossing the bridge to the Salmon. The ceremony will commence at 6:00 pm with an opening prayer by Residential School and 60’s scoop survivor Elder Roseann Martin, followed by an honor song with healing dancing done by jingle dress dancers Amanda Larocque, Kelsey Wysote and Mary-Jo Isaac. After this, Campbellton Mayor Ian Comeau will speak followed by both Chief Darcy Gray of Listuguj and Chief Sasha Labillois of Ugpi’ganjig. To end the ceremony, Elder Martin will speak on her personal experiences and will close off the evening with a prayer.
This event will be held rain or shine. Please wear orange in support of all Indian Residential School students. All are welcome.
Bus transportation from Listuguj and back will be provided for those who need assistance. To receive transportation, please contact the LMG front desk at 418-788-2136 as soon as possible to give your name and address.
Also, please be advised that even as restrictions are being reduced, we encourage you to continue respecting all Listuguj COVID-19 guidelines during the march including social distancing and wearing masks.
