Career Pathways School in collaboration with the Municipal District of Opportunity No. 17 (MD #17) and Bigstone Cree Nation members walked in unison during the 7th Missing and Murdered Indigenous Peoples Awareness Walk.
This walk started in November 2016 after local community members went missing and there were no answers to their whereabouts. The youth of Career Pathways School stepped in to bring awareness to the community and media about this ongoing traumatic issue of Murdered and Missing Indigenous women, girls, boys, and men. Although we have finally laid one to rest, Gloria Gladue, there are many heartbroken family members who continue to wonder what happens to Terrance Alook who went missing in October 2016.
The school would like to thank the following:
- The MD #17 Reeve Marcel Auger and council members for providing a bigger venue and providing lunch.
- The RCMP of Wabasca-Desmarais for ensuring our safety during the walk.
- The community members walked in honour of their loved ones who are missing or have passed on.
The school will continue bringing awareness for the generatioIndigenousgneous peoples who have died as a result of violence, and who are still missing after decades.
