Support the Stop the Violence March

Check out the Stop the Violence March
The March
A growing group of young Nuu-chah-nulth people and supporters are organizing a march/walk throughout all the Nuu-chah-nulth territories, beginning May 5th in the Pacheedaht community of Port Renfrew. The purpose of this march is to raise awareness and to announce our collective intent to stop the violence in our communities. We will visit all 15 of the Nuu-chah-nulth communities on Vancouver Island. The march was inspired by the initial efforts of the Tla-o-qui-aht women in 2004 and it is there that we plan to finish the walk on May 14th, Mother’s Day.
We are observing traditional protocols by seeking the permission of our hereditary leaders when possible and appropriate. We wish to acknowledge the elected leadership and staff as members of our communities who are committed to healthy Nuu-chah-nulth Nations. In addition to encouraging safe, open discussion, accountability and a healthy adherence of Nuu-chah-nulth laws and values we wish to leave a gift in each community.
