Barrhaven woman collecting messages of love, support, solidarity for Cowessess First Nation

If you want to send a card, poster, sign, or other message of support, you can drop it off at Alison Kinahan's Barrhaven home by 5 p.m. on Sunday.

A local woman is collecting messages of love, support and solidarity to be delivered to community members in Cowessess First Nation. 

Alison Kinahan is travelling to Treaty 4 in Saskatchewan next week, about 90 minutes west of Cowessess, and she is hoping to bring the love and support of Ottawa-Gatineau with her. 

She is urging anyone who wishes to send cards, posters or signs with messages of support, to drop them off at her Barrhaven home by 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 27. 

You can contact Kinahan directly through her Twitter page for the address to drop off items, and she says she will ensure they are delivered to the lands or health office while she is there. 

Kinahan says you can also show support by donating to the following organizations:

On Thursday, June 24, 2021, the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations and Cowessess First Nation announced that ground-penetrating radar had found 751 unmarked graves at the site of the former Marieval Indian Residential School.

The discovery follows the detection of the remains of 215 bodies on the grounds of a former residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia.
