Online Spiritual Gathering with Sacred Fire and Film Screening

Tuesday May 31st, 2022 @ 7:30 PM Eastern (6:30 PM Central) via Zoom

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:
