A Video Message and
Prayer from Pastor Vida
Today, May 5, we honour, remember and mourn missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and Two-Spirit people. The day is also known as Red Dress Day - which began with Metis Artist Jaime Black who hung red dresses on the campus of the University in Winnipeg in 2011. The empty red dresses which we hang in our windows, outside churches and public places are meant to symbolize the death of thousands of Indigenous lives, and are a visual reminder for us to reflect on how much Indigenous women girls and Two- Spirit people still suffer from injustice in our legal and societal structures.
