UNBC's First Nations Centre, in partnership with Lheidli T'enneh First Nation, the Prince George Native Friendship Centre, the College of New Caledonia, and the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation, is hosting a Moose Hide Campaign Gathering at our Prince George campus and throughout the community. This event is held in conjunction with Moose Hide Campaign Day, and the Provincial Gathering held in Victoria on the same day.
The Moose Hide Campaign is a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys who are standing up against violence towards women and children. Over the years it has grown into a national campaign to engage all Canadians, with over 1,000 participating communities and organizations across the country. In addition to distributing the Moose Hide pins, the Campaign hosts both Regional and National Gatherings which include a Day of Fasting. People of all ages, backgrounds, and gender identities are welcome to attend Moose Hide Campaign events.
In addition to attending the speeches and workshops, participants are encouraged to fast from sunrise to sunset on the 24th. If you are considering fasting, please read the Fasting Guide and connect with Spencer Hammond in the First Nations Centre for support (Contact Information Below).
Since time immemorial, Indigenous peoples have walked gently on the diverse traditional territories where the University of Northern British Columbia community is grateful to live, work, learn, and play. We are committed to building and nurturing relationships with Indigenous peoples, we acknowledge their traditional lands, and we thank them for their hospitality.
