VICTORIA, B.C. on May 16, 2024

Schedule for in-person event in Victoria, BC

In-person from Victoria, BC

We will be live-streaming our in-person ceremony from the Victoria Conference Centre, Crystal Gardens in Victoria, BC. The ceremony will feature a welcome message from Raven Lacerte as well as several inspiring speakers.

All are welcomed to join us in-person for the Plenary, Walk to End Violence, in-person workshops and fast-breaking ceremony.

FAST to End Violence

As in common in many Indigenous cultures, fasting is a symbol of commitment, and a way to deepen your intention. We encourage everybody to participate in the fast from sunrise to sunset on Moose Hide Campaign Day.

Sunrise & Fast Breaking Ceremonies

An important part of Moose Hide Campaign Day is the Sunrise and Fast-breaking Ceremonies.

The Sunrise Ceremony from the East Coast of Canada starts the day with intention. We will collectively watch the ceremony when the sun rises in Victoria at 7:00am.

For those participating in the Fast to End Violence, there will be an in-person fast-breaking ceremony at Crystal Gardens that will also be livestreamed. 

Workshops

Learn more about the issue of gender-based violence from Facilitators who lead discussions and share stories of healing and change. All registrants will have the opportunity to take part in the remote online workshops, with in-person workshops taking place in Victoria, BC.

Our K-12 workshops are pre-recorded and will be available for educators to review prior to bringing into their classrooms. Our workshops include a PDF with activities and discussion questions along with the estimated time frame needed to complete the workshop.

Walk to End Violence

There will be Moose Hide Campaign Day events and walks hosted by communities, schools and groups across Canada. If there are none taking place in your area, you can watch the live stream of the Walk to End Violence streamed live from the lawn of the Legislative Assembly in Victoria, BC.

If you are going to join us in person, please gather at the corner of Douglas and Belleville Street, where we will walk at noon to the Knowledge Pole on the lawns of the Legislative Assembly.
