Photo gallery: Reconciliation Week wraps up with Vancouver walk
The sound of drums rang out in downtown Vancouver as thousands took part in the Walk for Reconciliation Sunday (September 22).
Led by local First Nations and dignitaries, participants weaved their way from Queen Elizabeth Plaza to Concord Pacific Place, passing by tents featuring multicultural drumming along the way.
The walk was organized as part of Reconciliation Week activities in the city, and came a day after the Truth and Reconciliation Commission finished hearing testimonies from residential school survivors.
Speakers at the event included Bernice King and Chief Robert Joseph, the ambassador of Reconciliation Canada.
