PHOTOS: Battle Against Drugs Walk reaches local community

MORLEY – The Battle Against Drugs Walk was a solidarity protest by members of the Stoney Nakoda First Nation who were raising further attention to stop drugs from circulating in the community.

The walk was organized by the Wácágâ ôkóná’gîcíyâ’bî group – meaning a shield that provides protection physically and spiritually in the Stoney language – for the 4,000 community member nation that's comprised of the Wesley, Bearspaw and Chiniki bands.

“We want a bylaw that will show drug dealers aren’t allowed on the reserve,” organizer Summer Twoyoungmen told the Outlook prior to the walk. “Even though they’re band members, we don’t want them here dealing their drugs on the reserve.”
