The Journey of Nishiyuu: Cree youth walking over 1000km to Ottawa

Nishiyuu Journey

In January, inspired by the Idle No More movement, six Cree youth and one guide, left their community of Great Whale on the Hudson Bay to begin The Quest of Wisjinichu-Nishiyuu (Quest For Unity), a journey that will take them over 1500 km to reach Parliament Hill, Ottawa. For the past three months, they have been walking the traditional routes of the Cree, Algonquin, and Mohawk people, stopping in communities along the way and inspiring others to action. Now over 170 people have joined them on their quest to Ottawa.
