Shé:kon! Aanii!


On behalf of the Cooperative for Indigenous Studies Students & Alumni
(C.I.S.S.A.), I would like to thank you for taking part in the inaugural
Moc Walk campaign!


The Moc Walk campaign was initiated after members of C.I.S.S.A. learned of
the sudden closure of the Hamilton Native Women’s Centre’s transitional
housing program.  Recognizing education as one of the pathways to
empowerment, C.I.S.S.A. members collaborated with the Hamilton Women’s
Native Centre’s Executive Director, Cindilee Ecker-Flagg, to create Moc
Walk - an awareness and support campaign that would help eliminate barriers
to post-secondary success for Indigenous women.


The money raised by you and all of our walkers on November 8th will go to
the Hamilton Native Women’s Centre to create an award fund that will
directly support Indigenous women living in the City of Hamilton who are
pursuing their post-secondary studies.  When we invest in Indigenous women
we are also investing in Indigenous families and communities.


Your participation in the Moc Walk campaign is a strong message to our
Indigenous women that their success as well as the success and well-being
of their families and communities matter! Niá:wen for your support!  If you
have not already done so, please join us on Facebook: “Moc Walk” (event
page) and "like" CISSAatMac <http://www.facebook.com/CISSAatMac>for
campaign updates!



Nya:weh! Chi-meegwech!
