The Bead Project with Cannupa Hanska Luger
Community Day to Contribute to Artist’s Installation

Join us on Saturday, February 24 for a day of making beads with Cannupa Hanska Luger. Drop in and make a few beads to represent a handful of indigenous individuals lost to violence. For the most complete information - including video - on Luger’s proejct, visit http://www.cannupahanska.com/mmiwqtbeadproject Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Queer and Trans People BEAD PROJECT: 2” beads made from clay, unfired are requested from our communities to complete a monumental beaded portrait which will be created by artist Cannupa Hanska Luger from a photograph taken by First Nations photographer Kali Spitzer. This collaboration with community acknowledges our Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Queer and Trans people. In Canada alone, the number of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women was at 4,000 in 2016 as noted in research gathered by the Native Women’s Association of Canada.  We are aware that the narrative of MMIWQT expands beyond a specific region, and by starting here, with acknowledging this number and this place for this specific portrait and creating collectively, we can move forward and continue to address MMIWQT in all of our respective homelands. This community engagement is meant to activate our processing of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People through the action of doing and feeling in a collective effort to say ‘this is enough’. As you create, we ask you to hold awareness that each one of these beads represents an individual from our Indigenous communities that we have lost.
