CBC News – Starblanket Collaboration

A Re-Igniting Sacred Fires Initiative

‘They were loved,’ says Prince Albert participant about killed family members

The Starblanket Collaboration is part of the Re-Igniting Sacred Fires initiative by the Aboriginal Friendship Centres of Saskatchewan (AFCS). The project honours the lives and legacies of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and Two-Spirit (MMIWG2S) people, the organization says on its website.

CBC Radio featured a live interview with AFCS. Program manager Linda Johnson, and participant Sara Daniels join guest host Heather Morrison to discuss ‘Reigniting Sacred Fires’.

“The individual squares have since been woven together and the starblanket has been made”

– said Johnson

Now AFCS wants to speak with elders for more guidance before unveiling the blanket.
