Lake Manitoba’s Zaagaate Jordan’s Principle Program Honours IRS Survivors & those children left behind

July 1, 2021

Treaty 2 Territory – As I was scrolling through Facebook yesterday I came across inspiring posts of several Nations in the Treaty 2 Territory who are organizing walks, and events to honour residential school survivors, and all those children who were left behind.
We would like to acknowledge Lake Manitoba First Nation and their Zaagaate Jordan’s Principle Program for their beautiful walk to remember all those who suffered from Canada’s genocidal agenda.
‘Zaagaate Lake Man Jordan’s Principle did a walk to honour all children that were discovered at the old Residential school sites and for all their families who suffered from the genocide. It was an emotional walk thinking of what the children had to endure from the horrific acts of violence against them. We will never forget but one day, we will all heal” shared Mary Maytwayashing.
“I hope that our grandchildren will never have to endure what the children suffered in those schools and that they have a better future. We love our children and grandchildren, to us they are a gift and are sacred. We love our children” said Mary.
She continued, “Miigwech to Chief McLean and Council and to Lawrence West. I want to acknowledge Audrey Swan for sewing the banner ‘EVERY CHILD MATTERS’. She was so committed to finishing it for the walk. Carl Swan, thank you for sharing the songs as your voice amplified into the skies and across to our nations and relations”.
