Send Red Dresses to Unist'ot'en

red dress

"CALL FOR SUPPLIES - We are asking for our supporters throughout the continent to send us red dresses! We are hanging red dresses along the road to Coastal GasLink's proposed man camp site to show the devastating effects this camp will have on our community. We need as many dresses as possible.

These empty dresses will symbolize the lives lost of our sisters, mothers, aunties, grandmothers and daughters. If there is an Indigenous woman you would like to honor in this public act of remembrance, we invite you to write their name on the dress before you send it.

The research has shown the correlation between man camps and murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls. We are here to say#NOMANCAMPS AND #NOTRESPASS ON#WETSUWETENSTRONG YINTAH!

Please send dresses to:
Tsewedielh
Dark House / Unist'ot'en
620 CN Station Road
Smithers, B.C. V0J 2N1
Canada
