OHSWEKEN — Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council says they will be hosting a Candlelight Vigil to honour residential school Survivors and the children who never made it home.
The event will take place at Chiefswood Park in Ohsweken beginning at 4:00pm. Community members are invited to attend and place a luminary or traditional medicines at the display from 4:00 – 6:00pm. Luminaries will be provided on site.
At 6:30pm, local Survivors along with Elected Chief Mark Hill will speak. These remarks will be livestreamed on the Six Nations of the Grand River Facebook page as attendance will be limited due to COVID-19.
Members were also mailed postcards this week that they can redeem for an Every Child Matters sign or flag at the SNGREC Central Administration building or Six Nations Public Works.
