Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Red Dress Campaign

Add to Calendar

Join us in the Shaikh Family Welcome Gallery at Central Library to honour and learn about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada through discussions and interactive activities.

The issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls is an international matter that requires action, including public awareness and engagement. Racism against Indigenous peoples is often manifested in stereotypes, misconceptions, and blaming the victims. Indigenous women are blamed for living "high-risk lifestyles," a misbelief we want to change.

Attendees are invited to make their own red dresses out of paper, symbolic representations of each Indigenous woman who has gone missing or been murdered in Canada. These paper dresses will be making a tour of Calgary libraries in the fall of 2019.

This day is presented in partnership with the Awo Taan Healing Lodge Society.
