A ceremonial fire pit at Enoch Cree Nation’s first known unmarked gravesite represents the latest effort from a local Indigenous group to raise awareness of residential schools and the former Charles Camsell Indian Hospital.

The gravesite at 7301 199 St. NW, in a field at the end of Garnett Point, is the third location where Lorelei Mullings and members of the Free Our Indigenous Children Facebook group have set up reminders of the tragic legacy.

On June 25, they gathered outside the former Camsell hospital site and stayed for 50 days. They then set up a teepee on Winterburn Road, where the group stayed for 15 days.
