WHO WE ARE
The Moose Hide Campaign is an Indigenous-led grassroots movement seeking to engage men and boys, alongside all Canadians, to work together to end violence against women and children. As one of Canada’s most recognizable reconciliation initiatives, the Moose Hide Campaign continues to spread across the country. The movement seeks to engage people from all sectors, cultures, provinces, and territories to learn together, work together, and take personal responsibility and collective action. The Moose Hide Campaign has a priority of supporting learner-centered educational experiences on healthy gender roles, Indigenous issues, and reconciliation within the K-12 education context.
Our story is one of passion and possibility. Our heart-centered team is on a mission.
We want to gift moose hide pins to every Canadian.
We want to grow our national Moose Hide Campaign Day ceremony to realize one million Canadians fasting together, in ceremony, across the country
to end violence against women and children.
Our small, close-knit team completes their inspirational work in offices located in the Songhees Innovation Centre, on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen (Songhees) People.
