Six Cree youth and one guide started out in January from Whapmagoostui in Northern Quebec to walk to Ottawa, a journey of around 1600km. By the time they arrived the number of walkers had grown into the hundreds as people from the various communities on the route joined in. This is footage from March 25th of the final leg of the walk, from Victoria Island to Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and ends with the speech from David Kawapit, one of the original seven walkers.
“Through Unity and Harmony, the quest will revive the voices of our “Anskushiyouch”. Their voices will be heard once more. With their guidance and strength, the Truth to all the sacred teachings will be revived and we will become once more, a powerful United Nations across Turtle Island.”
