Moose Hide Campaign Day 2024

The Moose Hide Campaign is an Indigenous-led movement to engage everyone to end violence towards women and children. There is a disproportionate number of victims who are Indigenous women, girls, and Two-Spirit People. Wearing a moose hide pin signifies a commitment to taking action to end this violence.

  • One in three women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime (Stats Canada, 2006)
  • A woman or girl is murdered every 2.5 days in Canada
  • Indigenous women are killed at six times the rate of non-Indigenous women

Join us in the 2024 Moose Hide Campaign educational awareness event on Thursday, May 16, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Fireside Reading Room. The event will include a smudge, hand drum, performance by Kylie Soundy, and a jingle dress demonstration for a healing dance. Light refreshments will be provided. All are welcome. 

While at the Library, pick up a moose hide pin or create your own faceless doll to give a voice to the voiceless. Each doll represents an Indigenous woman who has become a ‘faceless’ victim of a heinous crime.
