A word from Gloria Polson

It is an honor to be a part of the Nishiyuu Walkers, a sacred journey we have all undertaken; Crees, Inuits, Algonquins, Attikameks, Mi’kmaq & many more united as brothers & sisters. We have walked the lands & traveled across lakes as our ancestors have before us, our elders have spoken of this journey as a prophecy, others have dreamt it.

Each walker chose to join, willingly sacrificing the comforts of their homes leaving their families behind for a cause they believe in, to have their voices heard for our people and by the people, for our lands and especially for the future generations to continue to unite as “ONE.”

The First Nishiyuu Walkers have endured snow storms & strong winds in freezing temperatures. Now, warmer days bring rain and dampness, yet the Walkers are very determined to continue this journey, regardless of blisters, wet feet and/or aches many experience, it is “not” stopping us! Many know their limits, for we take care of each other with love, respect and compassion for one another.

Each step forward is a healing journey, a spiritual growth for everyone; praying for our children and elders, women and men, for the people and for Mother Earth.

Meanwhile, being grateful and thankful to the “Creator” for being at our side when we need “Him” most and blessing us with all the kindhearted people who worked hard and supported us…and continue to support us each day!! We walk out of the goodness of our hearts, not for recognition nor appraisal, but for all of God’s creation!! Nishiyuu Walkers’ spirits are strong, hearts dancing!! So proud of our Youths, our Leaders!! So proud of People!! Peace be with you!! “Creator bless you!!”

    I applaud your journey. It is a standing up for your culture, community and individual lives. I heard a report on CBC radio this morning of your journey and this site. Beautiful images, beautiful site and beautiful cause. I work in a high school but it is a snow day today. I am lucky to have heard this report.
    Thank you for taking a stand. It gives hope to all.

    Yesterday I heard the story about this
    Journey. It is inspiring and important
    to many people beyond the Walkers.
