WINNIPEG — On January 3, Métis artist Jaime Black sculpted six figures out of snow as a reminder of the rates of violence against indigenous women.

Her sculptures can be seen lying or stretched out on the river trail in Winnipeg.

Vying for dialogue and discussion, Black explained that although the sculptures aren’t permanent, she hopes that they will start a discussion about what can be done to increase safety for Indigenous women and girls.

She drew inspiration from the REDress Project, one of her own outdoor community art displays, which tapered red dresses from trees in cities across Canada in honour of MMIWG.

The six sculptures were an individual effort this time, but Black said she hopes to invite others out to help co-create 40 or more sculptures in the future.
