On March 29, 2017, Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO)staff joined clients and community members from the Sudbury region for a Healing Moccasins Workshop.

MNO Métis Healthy Babies and Healthy Children Coordinator Dale Xilon and MNO Family Wellbeing worker Stephanie Kehoe led the Workshop and guided participants through a self-healing journey. Workshop participants shared thoughts and feelings on the varied roles of women as caregivers, spouses, family members and friends.

After a prayer was shared each woman was asked to write a message inside their moccasins. These messages represented something inside them that connects to each step in their life’s journey. All the messages were individual and unique. Some participants chose to share the meaning behind their messages.
