This morning Chief Sean Smith, Councillor Jolene Smarch, and Shirley Bien hung a red dress across from the Kashgêk’ building in McIntyre.
Shä̀w níthän, Másin cho, GunałchÎsh, Thank you to everybody who joined us.
Today and every day, we remember the missing and murdered Women, Girls, Two-spirit, and gender-diverse people in Canada.
Red Dress Day began in 2010, when Métis artist Jaime Black hung empty red dresses in public spaces. Each dress represented a woman who was not there to wear it.
The Whitehorse Aboriginal Women’s Circle, Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre, and other community groups are also organizing events to mark the day. Find out more here.
