The Red Dress Tee

This may be a problem you have not heard about. Indigenous women experience violence at a higher rate than any other group. On top of that, a disproportionate percentage of indigenous women go missing or are murdered in the U.S. and Canada every year. To bring awareness to this issue, Jaime Black started the REDress Project in 2010, which is a traveling art installation that shows empty red dresses hanging in various environments.

  1. One of the reasons Indigenous women are so vulnerable is that law enforcement and institutions that are meant to protect them are often indifferent. While more than 5000 indigeous women went missing in America in 2016, only 116 were added into the missing person’s database.  (Smithsonian Mag)
  2. Ignoring the plight and needs of indigenous people is nothing new in North America. In 2016, nearly 25% of single-race American Indians or Alaskan Natives lived under the poverty line. This is largely due to the infringement on Indigenous lands that has happened continuously for hundreds of years. (Vice)
  3. Question: What would you do if your community was dealing with an epidemic that no one else seemed to care about?
