The Windsor Public Library will be hosting a special project to bring awareness to the cases of close to 1200 missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada during the week of May 16th to 22nd.

In coordination with the Can-Am Indian Friendship Centre and the Métis Nation of Ontario, the project will consist of a series of workshops during which we are inviting community members to help create faceless dolls out of felt. Each doll represents one of the cases of murdered or missing women to help give a voice to these missing mothers, sisters and daughters.

All supplies will be provided, and the finished dolls will be displayed at the downtown Central Library to help educate and bring awareness to the community about this tragedy affecting Indigenous women across the country.

These workshops will take place on Monday, May 16th from 1pm to 3pm at the Riverside Library, Tuesday, May 17th from 11am to 1pm at the Budimir Library, and Saturday, May 21st from 10am to 2pm in the Central Library’s Fred Israel Auditorium.

For more information call 519-255-6770 ext. 6620 or ext. 5400.
