St. Joseph’s College Honours Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

 

On October 4, 2017, St. Joseph’s College School hosted a special assembly and vigil for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls of Canada.

 

Under the direction of St. Joseph’s College art teacher, Mr. Sabyan, students have been working throughout the year on their Jamie Black artist inspired Red Dress Project to bring awareness and motivate action, justice, peace and renewal. Staff and students wore red as a sign of respect and solidarity to this cause.


The assembly consisted of prayers, speeches, and a presentation of traditional First Nations culture, storytelling and dancing.
 Special guests included Aaron Bell, an Ojibway storyteller and the White Pine Dancers.  

 

Outside of the front of the school, various art pieces were on display that were created by the grade 12 art students. Red dresses created by grade 9 students also hung from the front fence.
