Public Art Unveiling
Please join us in the unveiling of the important Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and distribute to your friends, family and public in general.
Saskatoon Tribal Chief Felix Thomas and Saskatoon Police Chief Clive Weighill cordially invite you to the unveiling of our community’s monument to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. The unveiling will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Friday May 5, 2017 in the plaza in front of the Saskatoon Police Service Headquarters located at 76 25th Street East, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
The completion of the monument has been three years in the making. It has involved families of missing and murdered women, Elders, and public consultations. Saskatchewan artist Lionel Peyachew was selected during our final consultation session to create his vision of a monument that will be unveiled during the ceremony. We expect a large gathering of family members, dignitaries, and the public. Following the unveiling all attendees will be invited to a lunch of soup and bannock.
The monument has been jointly funded by the Saskatoon Police Service, Saskatoon Tribal Council and the Province of Saskatchewan. We hope it will serve as a place where families or friends can reflect. It will also provide a starting point for public gatherings or marches that raise awareness of the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
