These dresses were among the 100 or so to be hung around the University of Alberta campus in Edmonton and along Saskatchewan Drive as part of the REDress Project. The project, created by Jaime Black, a Métis artist from Winnipeg, is meant to draw attention to the high number of missing and murdered Aboriginal women in the country. The dresses hung from March 5-9.
