Walking With Our Sisters

April 11, 2015 - April 25, 2015

A Commemorative Art Installation for the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women of Canada and the USA.

Over 1,181+ native women and girls have been reported missing or murdered in the last 30 years in Canada. Many vanished without an adequate inquiry into their disappearance or murders by the general public, media, politicians, and even law enforcement.

In this massive commemorative art installation, 1,763+ pairs of moccasin vamps (tops) and 108 pairs of children’s vamps were created and donated by individuals to bring attention to this travesty of justice. Each pair represents one missing or murdered Indigenous woman. The children’s vamps are dedicated to the children who never returned from residential schools.
