Kellie Wuttunee looks resolved as she stands beside a body of water that now bears a new name – Kikiskitotawânawak Iskêwak Lakes – which means ‘We Remember the Women’ or ‘We Honour the Women’ in Cree.

As a result of the efforts of this Indigenous lawyer from the Red Pheasant Cree Nation, a group of lakes near Unity no longer bears the name Killsquaw.

“There can be no true reconciliation without justice,” Wuttunee said during a ceremony Tuesday afternoon to re-name the lakes. “This event is one of the first steps of many to ensure that everyone knows Indigenous lives matter.”
