The Urban Indigenous Strategy in partnership with local Indigenous Youth invites you to attend Honouring our Sisters, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls(MMIWG) Exhibit Opening Night on September 26, 2019 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Dundurn Castle. The exhibit will be installed from September 27 until November 5, 2019.
We will be focusing on the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Final Report Calls for Justice #1.9:
“We call upon all governments to develop laws, policies, and public education campaigns to challenge the acceptance and normalization of violence.”
The exhibit will bring awareness to many of the untold stories of the MMIWG, highlight statics around violence amongst women and girls, showcase local Indigenous art, a path of red dresses, “Honouring our Sisters” video and red dress pins and earrings that will be available to purchase. All the proceeds will be going to the Drag the Red Campaign.
Opening Night will consist of a traditional opening, drumming, acknowledgements, Honouring our Sisters video, guest speakers, tours and refreshments.
