Join the SW Ontario Tri-Regions for an Online spiritual gathering and screening of NFB Film: Honour to Senator Murray Sinclair.  This film is newly released and includes the then Senator Sinclair speaking, and clips of Residential School Survivors speaking to the TRC. The film is brief but moving, and includes some painful but important sharing. Watch the film trailer:  https://www.nfb.ca/film/honour-to-senator-murray-sinclair/.

The Spiritual Gathering will be led from Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Center, by three leaders from Cape Croker United Church in Neyaashiinigmiing:

Sheila Robson– Ishkoodeh Kwe (Fire Woman), Bear Clan on her Father’s side and Turtle Clan on her Mother’s Side, was raised and currently lives at Neyaashiinigmiing. She has been training under the wings of many Grandmothers, Grandfathers and Healers for over 20.

Ken Albert is a fire keeper from Deshkaan Ziibing which is Chippewas of The Thames First Nation, and now lives at Neyaashiinigmiing. He is Deer Clan and Son of Joyce Johnston.  He will be keeping fire for us outside Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Center.
