Rain doesn’t deter Membertou healing walk

MEMBERTOU, N.S. — More than 100 people marched in Membertou First Nation on Saturday as part of a healing walk held in response to the recent police shootings of Indigenous people.

Chantel Moore, an Indigenous woman, was shot and killed by Edmunston, N.B., police during a wellness check on June 4 and several healing walks across the Maritimes were held to honour her. Rodney Levi, a Mi’kmaq man from Metepenagiag First Nation, was shot and killed by the RCMP on Friday night, according to CBC News.

Andrea Moore marched holding up a red dress to honour missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, including her cousin Cheryl Johnson. Moore thinks police officers should be mandated to learn about Indigenous people. Full story here.
