Walk the talk for Indigenous Spirituality


I will take time off from my professional, working life to join this walk on June 23rd. You can too.

A kind and gentle soul can become frustrated by the empty talk from politicians about Canada 150, reconciliation and healing for the Indigenous people.

For years, groups of Indigenous people, settler descendants and faith leaders have been drawing attention to a sacred place in the middle of the Ottawa River, right here in Canada’s capital. They want the various levels of government to live up to a promise to return the waterfalls and islands to a place of worship.

    I took the time off my professional life to join in the Faith is Peace Walk on June 23rd. It rained most of the day, which seemed an appropriate companion to share the tears of disbelief. After recovering from all that Canada 150 buzz and a summer cold, I was finally able to write about my experience yesterday.
