Sa­cred fires, prayers

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

In­dige­nous com­mu­ni­ties are asked to light fires from sun­rise to sun­set Sun­day and to pray and re­flect on the ris­ing tragedy of First Na­tions sui­cides. The call for sa­cred fires and prayers is from On­tario Re­gional Chief Isadore Day, Wi­in­dawte­gowinini, in light of the in­creas­ing num­ber of vi­o­lent deaths and sui­cides of chil­dren and youth in many First Na­tions com­mu­ni­ties.
