Kainai Nation runners set out from East Coast on healing trek across Canada

Six people from the Kainai Nation in Alberta are running through the Maritimes on a cross-Canada journey of prayers and healing for families of missing and murdered Indigenous women and men.

The group, known as Napi’s Run 2023 for MMIWM and Mother Earth, set out from St. John’s on April 12 and plan to run 5,062 kilometres to Victoria, B.C.

“I just feel for them,” said John Bare Shin Bone. Full story here.
