Moose Hide Campaign raising awareness of violence against women and children

The Moose Hide Campaign is a movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men standing up against violence towards women and children.

The campaign was started nearly 10 years ago by an Indigenous father and daughter in British Columbia who were hunting moose near the Highway of Tears — where dozens of women have gone missing or been found murdered.

While skinning the moose, the pair realized the animal could be a significant symbol.

Moose-hide pins are worn during the campaign to symbolize the bravery of these women and to address the changes needed to protect them. It quickly took off and events are held nation-wide every year.

The campaign has been held annually at Saskatchewan Polytechnic for about five years.
