Ringing the Bell for Missing and Murdered Women

This past Saturday, a group of about 60 people gathered on the St. George's lawn for a short bell-ringing ceremony in memory of the over 1181 missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada. This coincided with the Walking with Our Sisters memorial exhibit at the K'omoks Band Hall. The bell rang more than 119 times, with the first 20 rings offered by Residential School Survivors. A group of gathered singers and drummers played the woman's warrior song while the bell rang.
