The Canadian Department of Justice reports that Aboriginal females are more than three times as likely to become victims of violent crimes than any other segment of society. Indigenous women are four times as likely to be murdered than their non-Native counterparts. Over 800 Native women have simply disappeared or been found murdered since the year 1990, and the epidemic shows no signs of slowing down.
This design features the Red Dress, which started out as a one-day display by Metis artist Jaime Black as a way of bringing attention to this issue. Now, five years later, the REDress Project is spreading awareness with exhibits across the country.
