Royal Roy Nahbexie will make 1000 bannocks for 21st Annual Women’s Memorial March on Tuesday February 14 2012 in Vancouver

 

Hey! My name is Royal Roy Nahbexie from Saskatchewan. I came to the city (Vancouver) 12 years ago.. it’s one of the only cities in the world that has ever accepted me as who I am.

On February 14, they are having a Women’s Day March for all the Missing Women of the Downtown Eastside.

I am a cook and a baker and I am going to be baking bannock for a 1000, 1000 people down there and that is my contribution to the city that gave me everything when I came from nothing.

I want to feed the people and I want to make sure every person in the march has a piece of bannock in their stomach so that they can carry on the struggle and the fight of the Missing Women!

“I Love You!”
