Walking With Our Sisters

Fundraising Dinner and

Silent Auction


Walking With Our Sisters exhibit

Walking With Our Sisters (WWOS) is an art installation/moving

ceremony in memory of the thousands of missing and murdered

Native women in Canada and the United States. Click here to

learn more about WWOS.

MKIM is proud to partner with our local Native communities in

N'dakinna to bring this moving tribute to the Enfield Shaker Village

in August 2016. This is one of only two locations to host WWOS in

the entire United States. Follow WWOS N'dakinna on Facebook to

keep abreast of all the local happenings leading up to August.

Join us for our first event, a fundraising dinner and auction.  WWOS

N'dakinna committee members will be cooking a feast of traditional

foods for you to enjoy. A small silent auction will add to the

evening's enjoyment.  Dinner will be served buffet style between

5pm and 8pm.

We are suggesting a donation of $10 per person.

Help support this historic commemoration.
