On Friday, January 11th, Project of Heart participated in one of the most powerful Pow Wows Ottawa has ever seen — a Parliament Hill rally in support of the Chiefs as they met with Canada.
It began with a Sunrise Ceremony on Victoria Island, and greetings from the Algonquin Nation to honour Chief Theresa Spence. The gathering gained momentum as participants marched to the Parliament buildings.
