Students Walk Hallways to Raise Awareness of Indigenous Peoples at Risk of Extinction in Columbia

Twenty-nine signatures
Amnesty International Petition
to Government of Canada
Protect Indigenous Peoples at risk
of extinction in Columbia
On April 19th, my students and I had a lunch meeting with representatives of Regina's Amnesty International. Gord Barnes, Halena Seiferling and Tracy Wright travelled from Regina and  shared Amnesty International's history and purpose. They left the posters regarding the Columbia campaign, so today, we walked -- Katara Ironquill leading us with music -- and twenty-nine people signed the petition. The kids are already talking about writing letters and maybe walking through downtown next week.



  1. Your Amazing sheena....the students are lucky to have such an amazing woman for a teacher. I love reading your blogs!

  2. This is so inspiring. Thanks for empowering your students and for taking such beautiful action for the rights and survival of endangered Indigenous Peoples in Colombia. Together we can make a difference! I look forward to seeing photos from the march downtown!
