Moose Hide Campaign

Posted on:

Stand With Us to End Violence Against Women and Children

"The Moose Hide Campaign provides a sacred space to contribute in our nation's healing journey. It is a movement that calls upon people to speak up, take action, educate and support each other!"

- Senator Murray Sinclair, Chief Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission

The Moose Hide Campaign is a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys who are standing up against violence towards women and children. Wearing the moose hide pin signifies your commitment to honour, respect and protect the women and children in your life and speak out against gender-based and domestic violence.

The inspiration for the campaign came to co-founders Paul Lacerte and his daughter Raven in 2011 during a moose hunt on their traditional Carrier territory along the Highway of Tears in Northern BC - where so many women have gone missing or been murdered. Since then, annual gatherings and ceremonial fasts have taken place and more than two million squares of moose hide have been distributed in thousands of participating communities, schools, and organizations across the country.

People of all ages, genders and cultures are invited to participate in our campaign actions.
