- Monday, June 10 at St. Joseph’s Hall, 340 Juniper Drive in Thompson. This event takes place from 3:30 to 6:30 pm.
- Tuesday, June 11 at Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre, 445 King Street in Winnipeg from 1 to 4 pm.

MKO invites media and members of the public to attend either of these important events. Those who are unable to attend can tune into our live stream via our Facebook page.
“Although the National Inquiry released its final report earlier this week, our work is just beginning. I encourage all Manitoba residents to learn more about the issues by reading the report and its Calls for Justice,” stated Grand Chief Garrison Settee. “We are all part of the solution and each one of us is responsible to play a part in implementing the Calls for Justice contained in the National Inquiry’s final report.”
