    Our participation in the 4th Annual Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women. Started at 11a.m. at “ Our Place” 919 Pandora Ave,
    About 500 gathered is threatening rainy weather, lots of Coastal Native Button Blanket Regalia , some plains native. about 4 drum groups most were singing in Coast Salish, some in Cree
    By count 11 Métis with Sashes, three I met without.

    No flags or placards were asked.
    After a Prayer, the walk started at 12:30 under light rain, very well organized with a very polite escort of Victoria Police, the organizers provided traffic control, water and snacks for those needing any, First Aid attendants on bicycles all the way.
    A stop at City hall were a short declaration was spoken helped by a Métis Carried portable amp and mike, good job Robb.
    Down Pandora about 6 blocks left on Government Street past the Empress Hotel on the Causeway, left to Thunderbird Park, Speeches and refreshments.

    My observation was there was a obvious inclusion of Métis in this years march,
    Eleven of us with Sashes the other three had buttons and infinity’s on jackets.
    Very well done with lots of spectators, all respectful, I did not hear or see and negativity.
    What traffic was held up was courteous, no horn blowing.
    There was even a C.H.E.K. TV, camera present again turned off when asked.

    One of the highlights was a lady who occasionally after drumming would give a plains Native women’s war trill, which to my and others delight scared the hell out of the Mooniow watching.
