Each year the spirits of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people are honoured on 5 May- Red Dress Day. Red Dress Day is to create awareness and to encourage people to take action for change. It was Metis artist Jaime Black who helped to inspire the red dress movement. Black chose red as she was told it was the only colour spirits cans see and using it as a way of calling the spirits back to their loved ones. – Lucie Roy Photo
