The Moose Hide Campaign, a movement that unites men against violence against women and children, will hold a rally and fast day in Prince George on Wednesday.
Various lectures, workshops and cultural activities are held at the University of Northern British Columbia, the College of New Caledonia, the Prince George Native Friendship Center, the Hadih House and the Fire Pit Cultural Drop-In Center.
The Moose Hide campaign was launched by a father and a daughter after a moose hunt in their traditional area along Highway 16 – the Highway of Tears – in northwestern British Columbia.
It has evolved from a single event to events across Canada, including Prince George.
Attendees are encouraged to wear an elk leather pin that supports them in honoring, respecting and protecting women and children.
Events at UNBC begin with a free registration at 08:30. Afterwards, opening ceremonies, keynote speakers, presentations and a lunch will be held at Gathering Place.
In the afternoon, lectures and workshops will be held at CNC and PGNFC.
A quick celebration will also be held at 5pm on the PGNFC. Begin.
