Overview. Red Dress Day honours the memories of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls across Canada. Métis artist Jaime Black helped inspire the red dress movement, where red dresses are hung from windows and trees to represent the pain and loss felt by loved ones and survivors.

Red Dress Day, also known as the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and Two-Spirit People (MMIWG2S), is observed on May 5th. Red Dress Day was inspired by Métis artist Jaime Black’s REDress Project installation, in which she hung empty, red dresses to represent the missing and murdered women.

On Saturday, May 4, Red Dress Awareness Southwest is hosting a Red Dress Day presentation and beading workshop at the Swift Current Branch Library (please see poster below).

We are also hanging red dresses on trees throughout the city from May 2-6 to honour Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and Two-Spirit People, and their families and loved ones, and to increase people’s awareness about this important issue. We invite you to join us in showing support by hanging red dresses outside your home, business, organization, or school, and by displaying a red dress image in your window, and by learning more about Red Dress Day and MMIWG2S. Below are some resources for teachers and all of us to potentially use and share.

We are excited to announce that Moose Hide Campaign Day will be taking place on Thursday, May 16, 2024.

Moose Hide Campaign Day is a day of ceremony where all Canadians are called to join together to take a stand against violence towards women and children and to take practical steps for our collective journey of reconciliation.

Together, we are making a change.

LIVESTREAM FROM VICTORIA, BC

The livestream originating from Victoria, BC. will feature a keynote speaker, messages from Raven Lacerte, and more information on how we can all work together to end gender based violence in Canada.

WALK TO END VIOLENCE

Events and walks hosted by communities, schools and groups across Canada, with a livestream of the Walk to End Violence streamed live from the lawn of the Legislative Assembly in Victoria, BC.

FAST TO END VIOLENCE

As in common in many Indigenous cultures, fasting is a symbol of commitment, and a way to deepen your intention. We encourage everybody to participate in the fast from sunrise to sunset on Moose Hide Campaign Day.

SUNRISE & FAST BREAKING CEREMONIES

An important part of Moose Hide Campaign Day is the Sunrise and Fast-breaking Ceremonies.

The Sunrise Ceremony from the East Coast of Canada starts the day with intention. You can watch the ceremony when the sun rises in your location on Turtle Island.

For those participating in the Fast to End Violence, there will be a livestream of the ceremony from Victoria, BC.

The National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and
2SLGBTQQIA+ Peoples is also known as Red Dress Day. This name comes from a powerful art project that raises awareness about the thousands of missing and murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ Peoples that represents an epidemic of gender-based violence in Canada.

In 2010, Métis artist Jamie Black began The REDress Project. It began as an art installation that hung hundreds of empty red dresses in public spaces to remind people of the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit women and girls lost because of gender-based violence. Jamie
Black’s project gained national and international attention and inspired a movement for change.

The word “redress” means to remedy or set right. The REDress project is a call to action. This call to action and the epidemic of gender-based violence targeted at Indigenous women, girls, and 2LGBTQQIA+ peoples that inspired the REDress project is at the heart of the work the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) has done since 1974. This is why NWAC is a vocal supporter of the REDress Project and has also worked tirelessly to advocate for days of commemoration like Red Dress Day. We cannot forget our lost grandmothers, mothers, sisters, aunties, and the 2SLGBTQQIA+ members of our communities. We must work together to redress this violence.
