A small group of people stood up together to bring See Me to life. The art installation draws our guests into a world of spirituality, hope and pain, but more importantly to bring awareness to the thousands of Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls across Canada. These women are no longer able to walk this path, so we will walk it for them and bring their names into the light. Will you finally See Me if I am no longer just a statistic?
Inspired by Sean Couchie’s piece Broken Circle, members of the London community joined together to make over 2000 gold birds and listen to the stories of what it is like being an Indigenous woman in Ontario. What we collectively and quickly understood is, this is not an Indigenous Issue but a Canadian Issue.
