Exhibition to raise awareness of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls

An upcoming exhibition to be displayed in Brock’s Rankin Family Pavilion will educate members of the University community about missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

The Legacy of Hope Foundation’s interactive four-piece Waniskahtan exhibit was designed to educate and create greater awareness about the high rates of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in order to commemorate them and to prevent future occurrences.

Hosted by Brock’s Hadiya’dagénhahs First Nations, Métis and Inuit Student Centre and the Office of the Vice-Provost, Indigenous Engagement, the exhibit will be on display in the Rankin Family Pavilion from Monday, Feb. 5 to Wednesday, March 6, and aims to provide a complete and current examination of the issue and its links to the residential school system and to address ongoing sexualized and racialized violence.

All are welcome to visit the exhibit, but photography of the exhibit is prohibited.

Any questions about the exhibit can be sent to kim.hill@brocku.ca
