    We are a Caravan from Northern Manitoba called the Mother Theresa Caravan of Northern Manitoba. On the morning of Boxing Day four vehicles with 11 people left Thompson Manitoba enroute to Ottawa to support Chief Theresa Spence. We are blessed that a group of traditional people in Winnipeg have joined us on our journey.

    We have 5 pipes including the grand mother pipe which honours motherhood and the lead pipe placed on the dash board of the lead vehicle to guide and protect us on our journey. We have in our possession ashes from ceremonial fires and sacred sites in Northern and Southern Manitoba with the intent of combining these with Chief Spence’s sacred fire. We submit Chief Spence has rekindled THE sacred fire of turtle island. In adding our ashes to Chief Spence’s sacred fire, we transmit our love and enduring gratitude to our Creator and Chief Spence for giving birth to and fuelling the Reclamation of Nationhood – our spirit is Idle No More. We seek leave to gather ashes from Chief Spence’s fire to bring back to Manitoba to share with those unable to make this substantial trek. Chief Spence’s sacred ashes may then be added to emergent, rekindled home and ceremonial fires that the full blessings of this time may become evermore widespread throughout our home and Native Lands.

    Upon arrival, we intend to have a pipe ceremony at Chief Spence’ s camp to offer our prayers, love and support. The actions we take reaffirms our message of Kechi’ Okawemow, leader of motherhood, keeper of natural laws and the caring and stewardship of Mother Earth. Even with the diversity of the Indigenous people, the message of Kechi Okawemow is a common thread of Indigenous People.
