The Moose Hide Campaign is a grassroots movement of
Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys who are
standing up against violence towards women and children.
Wearing the Moose Hide pin signifies your commitment to
honour, respect, and protect the women and children in
your life and speak out against gender-based and domestic
violence.
Participating in the campaign is also an act of reconciliation.
It acknowledges the legacies of colonization, residential
schools, and the tragic reality of the over 1,200 missing or
murdered Indigenous women in Canada.
The inspiration for the campaign came to co-founders Paul
Lacerte and daughter Raven in 2011 during a moose hunt
on their traditional territory along the Highway of Tears in
B.C., where so many women have gone missing or have
been murdered. Since then, annual ceremonial fasts have
taken place and close to one million squares of moose hide
have been distributed to raise awareness about the issue of
violence towards women and children.
