July 1 – Canada Day
Today we breathe deep the beauty of the lands and waters we call our home.
As uninvited settlers, we reflect with gratitude for the continued stewardship and activism from Indigenous Nations who have cared for Turtle Island from the beginning.
Many families come to Canada as a safe haven and refuge, with hope for their children and their future. Today we celebrate the freedom many of us have the privilege to experience, and the diverse communities we embrace.
Today, we continue to grieve and rage the injustices faced by many Indigenous Families through colonization, cultural genocide, the residential school system, the 60’s scoop, the millenial scoop, and the ongoing tragedy that too many Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit people go missing and are murdered.
“The truth is, no one of us can be free until everybody is free.” -Maya Angelou
