The Downie Wenjack Fund Family wishes to express our deepest gratitude for the love and prayers for Gord as he begins the next stage of his journey.
The Downie and Wenjack families are grieving the loss of our brother, our friend, Wicapi Omani ("Man Who Walks Among the Stars”).
Just one year ago today, Gord unveiled the Secret Path alongside the extended Wenjack-Achneepineskum family. At that time, Gord called upon all of us to “Do Something” to continue the work of reconciliation, awareness of the trauma of residential schools, and a better life for Indigenous Peoples in Canada.
One year later, we are saying goodbye to our dear friend, our brother, and we are committed to carrying out the work of Gord’s legacy.
