The Winnipeg Art Gallery was the scene, Friday evening, of the official unveiling of a Memorial Quilt in Honour of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
The quilt was created at this year’s Wiping Away the Tears National Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls Families Gathering in Winnipeg.
On hand for the ceremony were many of the families who contributed to the quilt.
The quilt, which was unveiled by three members of the RCMP, contains panels with the names of 60 women who have been murdered or gone missing in recent years. According to organizer Nahanni Fontaine, “Our hope for this quilt is that it will travel across the country.”
