Members of Maamawi Collective along with neighbours and friends assemble in a circle, in front of Uxbridge Township Office at 2:15 pm, Tuesday, June 1st. Standing silently in a circle connected by an orange ribbon a Land Acknowledgement was offered acknowledging that First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples ….are not history …THEY ARE STILL HERE and their stories matter.

Each person will keep the piece of ribbon they held as a reminder TO DO SOMETHING.

Councillor Bruce Garrod accepted the “215 Orange Shirt” from Barbara Blower of Maamawi Collective, which is now on site at Township of Uxbridge near office front door… where it will remain for 215 Hours.
