K’ómoks Band Hall July 31 to August 15, 2015

Walking With Our Sisters is a memorial installation that honours the more than 1,181 missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada and the United States. Comprised of over 1,763 pairs of moccasin tops plus 108 pairs of children’s tops, it was created by over 1,400 caring and concerned people to draw attention to this injustice. The Walking With Our Sisters K’ómoks Organizing Committee is honoured to bring this memorial to the K’ómoks Band Hall, 3320 Comox Road, Courtenay, BC. It is the first and only British Columbia venue for this international touring event. Open to the public, the event is free. Please see the Walking With Our Sisters Comox Valley facebook page, for more information.

Before the arrival of the installation, the Walking With Our Sisters K’ómoks Organizing Committee and the Sid Williams Theatre Society will present, “Beyond The Ceremonial Welcome”.
