In honour of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, an Indigenous organization will be leading two walks today (Sept. 30) at a park in Milton.

The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a day to remember the children, families and communities affected by residential schools in Canada.

The organization, called Grandmothers Voice, is a group of Indigenous people that create a safe and secure community while providing education and understanding of Indigenous cultures and practices.

In honour of the children of Canadian residential schools, Grandmothers Voice will be leading walks at 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. at Country Heritage Park, located at 8560 Tremaine Rd.

A 20-foot banner will be displayed on a large barn that reads “bring our children home.” It will be seen along Highway 401 at Tremaine Rd. along the escarpment.

Participants will meet at the entrance of the park and walk to the backfield in front of the barn together where they will stop and gather in prayer and love.

A tractor and trailer will be there to move those along who require support.

Participants are encouraged to wear orange shirts and pre-register here.
