The Call Out: 3rd Annual Tar Sands Healing Walk   

We, the Keepers of the Athabasca, are calling on allies and supporters to join us on a healing walk. We are asking all community members of the Tar Sands regions and those in the path of tar sands infrastructure (pipelines and refineries) and all supporters to come out and walk for the healing of the land and our sacred waters.

The walk will be led by First Nation and Metis elders and community members but we are hoping that our allies will come out to walk beside them as supporters as well.

The walk starts at 10am at Crane Lake Park — east side of highway 63 near Syncrude’s Mildred Lake site — it is approximately 14 kms and will be followed by a community feast at the Fort McMurray Friendship Center.

Visit www.healingwalk.org to RSVP today! This is not a protest, march or a political rally, nor is it a race! It is a spiritual healing journey to focus attention on the water and land and the people who care about the future. 

We respectfully ask supporters to embrace the spiritual intention of this walk and show solidarity by walking under the direction of the Indigenous Elders.  

*If you are able to offer a ride to Fort McMurray, or are in need of a ride, please contact [email protected] and include in your email whether you need a ride or can offer some spots in your vehicle. Also it would be great if folks could agree to sharing in the cost of fuel.  Also, please indicate whether you do not need the same ride back in your e-mail. Thank you!
