Close to 1,000 people are at Victoria Park in London, Ont Friday morning for the second annual Turtle Island Healing Walk.
“My heart is full,” said Aylssa Rose, the organizer of the walk.
With a busy day of activities on Canada Day, Rose was unsure what the turnout would be.
The morning will consist of speeches from members of the First Nation community including residential school survivor Lyla Bruyere of Sarnia, Ont.
‘We are here to honour survivors,” said Bruyere who attended school in Fort Frances, Ont.
The walk will then head down Richmond Street where they will set off smoke.
