An Indigenous Woman From Mount Currie Made Special Vests For Members Of Local Sikh Motorcycle Club

Recently the members of a local Sikh Motorcycle Club rode to Kamloops Indian Residential School where the remains of 215 indigenous children were found.  The members of the motorcycle club reached there to pay respect to the children. 

And in response to this heart melting gesture of the sikh rides, Jackie Andrew, an Indegenous woman decided to gift them something special. She made special vests for them with two badges; one with Club’s name and another of Indegenous circle of life with four colours representing different races. 

The lady gifted these vests to Malkiat Singh Hoonjan and other members of the motorcycle club. And now their picture is going viral on social media. Gurpreet Singh covered this special story with detailed information about the Indian Residential Schools. 

And it states,

Indian residential schools were opened across Canada by churches and colonists as part of a federal government policy to “kill the Indian within Indians”.

The Canadian government has already acknowledged that it was a wrong thing to do even as the number of Indigenous kids had died in these schools because of the disease, malnutrition and abuse remains inconclusive.

Indigenous children were forcibly sent to these schools where they were discouraged from keeping their traditional names and prohibited from speaking their mother language. Defiance invited brutal punishment.

As more and more unmarked graves are being located through ground-penetrating radar, the Sikh community has stepped forward to show solidarity with the First Nations, who are grieving.”
