Schools honour Red Dress Day with events, dedicated reflection, walks

Schools across Canada honoured Red Dress Day with commemorative events and dedicated time for reflection to bring awareness to missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit people. Several schools held walks or marches to honour the lives lost, including Cape Breton University; John NA Janvier School at Cold Lake First Nation in Alberta; and several schools in British Columbia, including Ruth King Elementary, David Cameron Elementary School, Savory Elementary School, and Spencer Middle School. Institutions like Durham College and Mount Saint Vincent University installed red dresses on campus to commemorate the lives lost. The University of Saskatchewan held a beading workshop and Brock University held ribbon skirt and medicine pouch workshops to offer opportunities for community members to learn and share.
