Stanley Mission Memorial Unveiling

Thanks to everyone who helped record this important moment for community memory, and for ensuring that the Cree language was lovingly incorporated into the memorial and the celebration. It’s an honour to record the moment here.

Special thanks to Teron Roberts, whose organization and tenacity created this moment. In his own words,:
Thank you to everyone who came to sit and visit with us today at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church at Stanley Mission.

We unveiled the Memorial Plaque made in Remembrance of our Ancestors who died in the Influenza Epidemic of 1920. It is Dedicated to the Survivors and all their Loved ones left behind who cared for, attended the sick and dying, and helped bury the dead. It is also Dedicated to the unknown, but remembered Relatives who died and were buried out on the land. Each an irreplaceable loss. Each leaving behind a family, and a community forever changed. kikistîthitinân: we honour you.

Special Thanks of Chief and Internal Council of Lac La Ronge Indian Band and Councillors of Stanley Mission. A sincere acknowledgment to Ty Roberts and the LLRIB Lands and Resources department for their involvement in this project: kinanâskomitinâwâw.
