Walking With Our Sisters

May 17, 2016 by  Uncategorized /

Walking With Our Sisters is a commemorative art installation for the missing and murdered Indigenous women of Canada and the United States. The exhibit is comprised of 1,763+ moccasin vamps (tops) plus 108 pairs of children's vamps that each represent one missing or murdered Indigenous woman. The vamps were created or donated by individuals dedicated to drawing attention to this injustice, including 1372 artists. The installation is arranged in a winding path formation on the floor for viewers to walk barefoot alongside the vamps. 60 traditional honour, grieving, and ceremonial songs can be heard throughout the exhibit.

Walking With Our Sisters has been shown in galleries and venues across Canada since 2013, and will continue to travel until 2019. To find out when the installation will be in your town or city, click here.
