Walking with Our Sisters – Ceremony
October 2014 - November 2014
The 1,808 moccasin vamps that form the Walking With Our Sisters (WWOS) Exhibit commemorates Canada’s 1,200 missing and murdered Aboriginal women. The vast majority of the vamps were made by Aboriginal women from across the country and then submitted to well known Toronto based artist Christi Belcourt.
This installation saw thousands of visitors through the doors of Wanuskewin Heritage Park. The installation was free to the public and all volunteer lead. It was a moving reminder of missing and murdered Aboriginal Women in North America and Wanuskewin was proud to be the ceremonial home WWOS.
