Footprints In Time

On Friday, I was part of Indigenous people asked to walk across clay in moccasins to help eventually create a bronze cast of footprints that will honour footprints of our ancestors found over 100 years ago in Toronto, but then covered over by concrete as described below in the Toronto Star article from 2008.

This is one monument that I think needed to be done….and glad it will not be covered over by concrete….but rather be set in bronze….lasting for years to come….and maybe it will bring about a positive conversation of how long the ‘footprint’ of Indigenous people have been on this land. It will certainly be far better than those of dead politicians. Because we are still walking this land.
