Yukon Sisters in Spirit
Our Yukon Sister in Spirit campaign is held on a yearly basis on October 4th. We have a walk, prayers and inspirational speakers.
Sister’s in Spirit is a nationally driven research, education, and policy initiative by the Native Women’s Association of Canada. The Yukon Aboriginal Women’s Council has recently begun the Yukon Sister’s in Spirit project to specifically look into cases of missing and murdered Aboriginal Women in Yukon. A component of this research is to honor the lives and stories of these women, as well as to prevent violence against Aboriginal women and girls in Yukon communities.
