Honouring Cairn is located on Mayne Island, BC, unceded Coast Salish Territory that is part of the Douglas Treaties. Each stone on this cairn represents a child who died in a residential school or someone who survived their experience in one. Installation began on National Indigenous People's Day, June 21, 2016, by the students of the Mayne Island School. The concept and creation was by Johnny Aitken.
