The Women's Place Resource Centre in partnership with Bear River First Nation held the Honouring Our Sisters event on May 10, 2016 at the Bear River Cultural Centre.  It was a time to honour and remember all of the missing and murdered indigenous women and come together physically and in spirit to inspire us to join together to end all violence against women and girls.
