Siblings Callie and Evan Joseph are back home in Iskatewaiizigaagen #39 Independent First Nation after an emotional procession and wake yesterday.
The procession for the 15 and 11-year-old, who passed away in a three-vehicle incident last week, was led by Treaty Three Police Services from Brown's Funeral Home, to the Moncrief Construction Sports Centre, through downtown Kenora and onto Highway 17 west to their home in Shoal Lake #39.
Hundreds, perhaps even in the thousands, of supporters lined the route of the procession showing their respects for the Joseph family, including residents, the O.P.P., Kenora Fire, Northwest EMS and KDSB.
As the dozens of vehicles in the procession passed by, supporters were seen with hands on their hearts, hockey sticks in the air and raising home-made signs showing #4 and #23.
A Facebook Live video has been shared showcasing the support to Shoal Lake.
A traditional funeral service will be held at the David Kejick School at 10 a.m. today.
The GoFundMe Page is still open and those who would like to donate to the family may still do so. At the time of writing, the fundraiser as raised over $90,000.
