Red Dress Warriors Project
October 4th is a day to honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and gender diverse people. It is a time to support families feeling their loss and create opportunities for healing.
Doreen Manuel (Secwepemc/Ktunaxa), director of the Bosa Centre for Film and Animation at Capilano University, has created Red Dress Warriors, a currated exhibit of red dresses on display at the Bosa Centre for Film and Animation.
The Red Dress Warriors display, which recognizes Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, is on display in the Bosa building, first and second floor, now until October 8. Take a moment to look up and take in the dresses that are visible through the windows from outside the building as well.
The SMPA Costume Department created the dress display and Manuel wrote the statement beside each dress.
The violence experienced by Indigenous women, girls and gender diverse people in Canada is a genocide. United, we will demand action on an issue that impacts us all!
