Today is a day to reflect, remembrance and dialogue in the Stoney Nakoda Nation.

Held annually  in support of Suicide Awareness Week in recent years by the Stoney Nakoda people, "A Walk to Remember Our Loved Ones" includes a ceremony, gathering, honour songs, and a healing walk.

TJ Powder, of the Mini Thni Crisis Support team, says its also an opportunity for people to share their stories.

He says 2020 has been a particularly challenging because of the pandemic.

"It's been bad over the years, don't get me wrong, but it seems that it's just been escalating as time goes on with what we've been going through in 2020 so far."

It starts today at 11 a.m. in the parking lot in front of Stoney Health Services and is expected to last until 3 p.m.
