Recently, Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Grand River Métis Council (GRMC) Women’s Representative Colleen Brunelle and her daughters Avaline and Stella participated in a photo shoot with photographer Carly Hunt on the grounds of Marianne’s Park in the City of Guelph.
Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis partnered with Hunt to take photographs of First Nations, Métis and Inuit women and children as part of a social media campaign called the Red Dress Project, which will raise awareness for Canada’s missing and murdered Indigenous women.
The Red Dress Project started as an art installation created in 2010 by Winnipeg Métis artist Jaime Black. It has grown all across Canada as a haunting reminder of the more than 1000 missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. It serves to both mark their absence and remind us all that they will not be forgotten.
