A group of walkers from Norway House Manitoba are now nearing the end of the journey on the North Coast of BC.
The group left Norway House in mid-July and is now nearing their final destination of Prince Rupert.
Led by Brenda Osborne, the group is walking the long distance to raise awareness for all missing and murdered indigenous people.
They’re currently in Houston and are averaging about 130-140km a day.
From Winnipeg to Prince Rupert, they’ll have walked just over 3,400km.
The village of Hagwilget is organizing a welcoming for the group when they arrive, and are looking for donations.
Vivian Joseph says they’ll hold a mini-feast for the walkers.
The walkers are accepting donations of outer wear clothing, footwear, socks, gas, food and water.
The’y’re expected to arrive in Hagwilget on the evening of Sunday September 6.
If you want to help the walkers with donations please contact Brenda Osborne at: 204-963-9017.
