The Moose Hide Campaign was started by a father and daughter after a moose hunting trip in their traditional territory along Highway 16 - the Highway of Tears - in northwestern British Columbia.

It has grown from a single event to events across Canada, including Prince George.

Participants are encouraged to wear a moose hide pin that signifies their support in honouring, respecting, and protecting women and children.

Events at UNBC begin with free registration at 8:30 a.m., followed by opening ceremonies, keynote speakers, presentations, and a catered lunch at the Gathering Place.

Afternoon events take place at CNC and PGNFC with presentations and workshops.

A breaking fast celebration will also be held at PGNFC, 5 p.m. start.

Pre-registration is encouraged at moosehidecampaign.ca.
