Moose Hide Campaign on campus

Members of the student union at the University of Saskatchewan are calling for an end to violence against Indigenous women and children

The Moose Hide Campaign has made its way to the University of Saskatchewan campus, and television cameras were there to document its arrival.

The campaign is a grassroots movement of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal men who are standing up to violence against women and children. Anyone who wears the Moose Hide pin is showing their commitment to respect and honour women, and to work together to end violence.

Students at the University of Saskatchewan marched to end violence against Indigenous women and children this week and men were asked to lead the change.

“Traditionally as men, our role was to stand as protectors and also to support our women,” Regan Ratt-Misponas, indigenous student representative with the USSU, told Global News.

“Our women were very much regarded as the leaders of First Nations communities and First Nations reserves,” he said.
