Barb Ward-Burkitt to receive five-millionth moose hide pin

Barb Ward-Burkitt

Today, the Moose Hide Campaign will be presenting its five-millionth moose hide pin to Barb Ward-Burkitt, the Executive Director of the Prince George Native Friendship Centre.

Ward-Burkitt is receiving the five-millionth pin in recognition of her dedication to ending the crisis of murdered missing Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit plus individuals, and for her leadership in the Friendship Centre network. (Canada’s most significant national network of self-determined, Indigenous owned and operated civil society community hubs offering programs and vital services to Indigenous peoples in urban and rural settings.)

The ceremony celebrates the impressive milestone of distributing five million moose hide pins to Canadians and the progress the Campaign has achieved in raising awareness against gender-based violence. Last year, Senator Michèle Audette received the four millionth pin, and previous to that, Murray Sinclair received the three millionth pin.

The ceremony will take place at the Prince George Native Friendship Centre at 3:30 p.m.
