WITH the lifting of travel restrictions in BC, Sikh Motorcycle Club members did a ‘Lost Souls Memorial Ride’ to remember and honour the lost souls.
The members noted: “This ride educated each of us more about the residential schools and gave first hand information straight from Indigenous voices.”
To commemorate National Indigenous History Month, and in light of the recent heartbreaking revelations in Kamloops, each individual member donated on the spot to lend financial help as a gesture of reconciliation.
Seven thousand masks in collaboration with the United Sikhs organization were given out as well to decrease the community spread of COVID-19. The ride was very successful in raising awareness as 60-plus members participated with almost 50 bikes on the road.
“We would like to thank entire Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc Nation, Chief Kukpi7 Rosanne Casimir and Council Justin Cale Gottfriedson for welcoming us with a smudging ceremony,” the members said in a statement.
