Note change of Location: The event will be held in St John’s Anglican Cathedral basement, adjacent to the future site of the Healing Forest in St. John’s Park.
The Healing Forest is a living memorial to Indigenous children lost to or affected by the residential school system. It will be placed within St. John’s Park in the North End of Winnipeg. The Healing Forest is more than a memorial. This land will be a gathering place for families, communities and schoolchildren and a place for learning and healing. It is a place for remembering the past and envisioning the future.
