Community gathering to honor missing and murdered aboriginal women
Halifax, NS – The Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre with the support from the Public Service Alliance of Canada are hosting a community gathering to honor missing and murdered aboriginal women.
At present, there are 824 missing and murdered aboriginal women in Canada. To some, this number does not appear to be many, however, we are endeavoring to make this number a visual reality. We will construct a 10’ Dream Catcher, on which 824, smaller dream catchers will be hung, representing each and every one of the missing and murdered aboriginal women.
Community members are invited to join us and help weave a dream catcher to represent a missing and murdered aboriginal woman.
WHEN: 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 16, 2014
WHERE: Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre
