General Notes:
I, Mary L.L Graham, am a Family Member/Survivor and would like to show respect to our loved ones who are missing or murdered by planting a Manitoba Heritage Bur Oak Tree for the MMIWG-MMIMB & LGBTQ2S. (Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls/ Missing & Murdered Indigenous Men and Boys & Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Two-Spirit). This Manitoba Heritage Bur Oak Tree is planted in honour of the Families and Survivors of the MMIWG-MMIMB & LGBTQ2S. The planting ceremony of this tree brings together the Community to offer respect and remember our loved ones who were subjected to violence. The recognition of this bur oak as a Manitoba Heritage Tree for MMIWG-MMIMB & LGBTQ2S will gather the Families/Survivors, Community, Organizations, Government, and Individuals to raise awareness, to encourage change, and to provide support to the Families and Survivors.

The genus name, Quercus, is the Latin name for the oaks. The species name, macrocarpa, means “with large fruit” from the Greek words “makros”, meaning large, and “karpos”, meaning fruit. The Oak tree is one of the most loved trees in the world, and with good reason. It is the national tree of many countries. It symbolizes Strength and Endurance, Honour, Nobility, and Wisdom. Other qualities associated with the Oak tree include protection, success, and stability. Oaks are known to easily surpass 300 years of age making it a powerful life-affirming symbol. It is known as the “Tree of Life” because of the countless living beings that make it their home and due to its large size and longevity. When we walk the “Red Road ”, the Indigenous Spiritual Path, we are all related – we come from Mother Earth. The “Tree of Life”, its leaves and fruits, nourish the soil we walk on, nourish us, and its roots are full of history. Like the Medicine Wheel, it represents the cycle of life.
