Join Us for 17th Annual North End Spring Feast Set for April 12

2013 WPS North End Spring FeastApril 11, 2013 - Members of the Winnipeg Police Service District #3 Community Support Unit invite you to join them for the 17th Annual Spring Feast. The event takes place at the Indian & Metis Friendship Centre located at 45 Robinson Street on Friday, April 12th at 12 noon.
In traditional Aboriginal communities, there were a select group of individuals known as the Peacekeepers or Warriors of the tribe.  They were from the Bear Clan and assumed the responsibility to protect the community from harm.  Another important role was to provide food to ensure no one within the community was hungry.
As police officers, we are honorary members of the bear clan and are expected to perform a wide range of duties and assume many different roles including being a Peacekeeper.
The Winnipeg Police Service North End Spring Feast, under the guidance of an Aboriginal Elder, is reminiscent of the tradition whereby the hunters in the community prepared and held a Community Feast.
