The Moose Hide Campaign started as a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys standing up against violence towards women and children. Over the years, it has grown into a national campaign to engage all Canadians, with more than 2,000 participating communities and organizations across the country.
Why moose hide? The inspiration came from the land, from the loving relationship between a father and daughter, from the stretch of highway known as the “Highway of Tears” where violence has taken so many loved ones, and from the spirit of the moose. Wearing the moose hide pin signifies your commitment to honour, respect, and protect the women and children in your life and to work together to end violence against women and children.
