Montreal All-Girls School Honours Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women with Dress Project

October 24, 2018 |

When a group of Grade 7 students in Christianne Loupelle’s science class at Trafalgar School for Girls started the last school year, the majority knew little about the cases of hundreds of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

But today those students at the private anglophone school in Montreal are helping raise awareness among their school’s community with life-size paper dresses inspired by the Métis artist Jaime Black’s REDress Project.
