Church Matters Podcast: Episode 118:
A Pilgrimage for Indigenous Rights
Guests: Kathleen Vitt, Henry Neufeld
Kathleen Vitt and Henry Neufeld will walk hundreds of kilometers in support of Indigenous rights in Canada. It’s their way of engaging with the 2015 concluding report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), which issued a series of call to actions for the churches. One of those calls to action is to support the UN’s Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). The Pilgrimage for Indigenous Rights is an effort to raise awareness of UNDRIP and why it’s important for the Christian settler community. “Pilgrims” will walk 600 km from Kitchener-Waterloo to Ottawa, Ontario, meeting with various people from a variety of Christian expression along the way for learning and conversation. Hear Kathleen and Henry reveal their motivations for walking.
