It is estimated that 600+Native women in Canada have gone missing or have been murdered in the last 20 years. Many have vanished without a trace with little to no concern paid by the media, the general public or politicians. This is a travesty of justice. 600+ moccasin tops are being created by hundreds of caring and concerned people to create one large collaborative art piece that will be installed for the public in various galleries and sites. They will be installed in a winding path of beaded vamps on cloth over a gallery floor in various location in Canada. They are not forgotten. They are sisters, mothers, daughters, aunties, cousins, grandmothers and friends. - Walking with Our Sisters. PAID FOR BY THE STUDENT CULTURAL PROGRAMMING FEE.
