It is important to have a plan and concrete steps as the movement to end violence against women and children continues to grow and norms change...
Changing societal norms, long standing worldviews and unacceptable actions does not happen through isolated activities. Create a classroom or school wide plan to ensure that learning is ongoing, actions and activities happen throughout the year and that learning happens at every grade level.
Consider making Moose Hide Day an annual event in your school. Your Moose Hide Day will be a great way to honour and celebrate the actions for change that have happened over the year and to commit to next steps in the year to come.
Some Moose Hide Campaign events could include:
- Walks to end violence
- Fasting ceremonies in high schools OR fathers fasting for the women and children in their lives in elementary schools (download the fasting guide)
- Ceremonies to honour women and children in the traditional ways of the people of the territory
- Ceremonies to honour men who are walking the path of honour in their value for, and treatment of women and children.
Send us a new story, video, newsletter or other communication about your Moose Hide Day activities each year highlighting the good work being done in your school.
