Exhibit will be in the Lydia M. Olson Library Atrium through the end of the semester.
Northern Michigan University's Mino-Bimose'idiwag (WPT), a program through the Social Work Department and Center for Native American Studies, and the Native American Student Association (NASA) organized this display to honor and call home our missing and murdered relatives, educate our campus and community, and call for justice for our people and folks to take action with us. This installation will be on display until the end of the semester.
The Red Dress Project was originally created by Jaime Black, a Metis artist from Winnipeg, Canada, as an aesthetic response to the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women (MMIW). There are thousands of cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, Two Spirit, and other relatives (MMIP) across the U.S. and Canada, many of which often go ignored by mainstream media and unsolved by law enforcement.
