Indigenous Assembly  

Wednesday October 4th

St. Joseph College School

8:30 am - 12 pm 

Special Guests Aaron Bell and the White Pine Dancers

 
 

We have been working throughout the year on our Jamie Black artist inspired red dress project to bring awareness to the Canadian human rights issue of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.  This is important to us as we are a school of young women who want action on addressing this issue.
 

Our day consists of prayers, speeches, and a presentation of traditional First nations Culture and Storytelling, There also will be an installation of outdoor art pieces created by the grade 12 art students, and red dresses created by students from grade 9.
So our day has a special focus, but most important is to bring awareness and more government action,  justice, peace, and renewal. We are asking everyone to wear red here at the school and outside in our community.

 

Oct 4th is a day that has been associated with the Missing and Murdered Indigenous women and girls and 2 spirited people.  The practice is growing where a red dress is hung outside for the day in solidarity with likeminded Canadians who share in our vision to seek justice and healing. Educating our entire school community gives our students a voice in which they can make a difference and that through art they can express their thoughts, feelings, and understandings.
