Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Installation
On view weekends through October 27
The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) Installation: A Remembrance and Blessing honors the lives of Native American women, girls and two spirits that have succumbed to this crisis; never to return back to their families, friends and communities. Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women is an epidemic in both the United States and Canada.
The American Indian Community House is raising awareness by hanging donated red dresses throughout The Admiral’s House and the nearby surrounding property. The red dresses prove symbolic in the remembrance for each missing and murdered soul. We will add red dresses to the installation every weekend. You can actively participate and help raise awareness by donating a red dress/ (Please note The American Indian Community House is not responsible for theft, loss or damage to donated red dresses)
