Tar Sands Healing Walk

Jul 5 2013 - 6:00am to Jul 6 2013 - 6:00am

The Healing Walk started in 2010 in Fort McMurray Alberta, which is located in the Northern Boreal Forest. Fort McMurray is in Treaty 8 where for the past 50 years there has been oil extraction. Initially the extraction was oil, it is now crude which is a much heavier form of oil and takes more energy and water to extract, making it one if the dirtiest oils on the planet.

Healing Walk 2011

Jun 25 2011 - 4:00pm

Calling all community members and allies: Join us and walk for the healing of mother earth and her sacred waters.

Mother earth needs our help in the protection and healing of the land and water. We as Indigenous people are caretakers of the earth and we need to work together for the health and safety for the next generations.

We, the Keepers of the Athabasca, are calling on allies and supporters to join us on a healing walk on Saturday, June 25, 2011. We are asking all community members of the Tar Sands region and supporters to come out and walk for the healing of the land and our sacred waters. The walk will be led by First Nation and Metis elders and community members but we are hoping that our allies will come out to walk beside them as supporters as well.
