You may protest if you can love the person you are protesting against as much as you love yourself.

The REDress Project by Jaime Black❤️

Red Dress Photography Project by Mufty Mathewson❤️

  1. My thoughts this morning…💛

  2. Thanks for sharing, Hedy, have a nice Sunday ❤️️❤️️❤️️

  3. Breathtaking landscapes!

    • the land is endless and dense and so beautiful…I feel like a speck in these mountains…thanks for your comment Nadia ~ compose a joyful day ~ Hedy ☺️😄

  4. That is sad. But I’m glad there are tributes and remembrances. Have a good day, Hedy. Smiles

  5. These are great. The red dress project reminds me of the gnome in the movie Amalie.

    • nice…I loved Amélie…I’m going to watch again. ☺️

      just sharing 🤓

      that for Jamie Black…the colour red after conversations with an indigenous friend, who told her red is the only colour the spirits can see. “So (red) is really a calling back of the spirits of these women and allowing them a chance to be among us and have their voices heard through their family members and community”.[5] Black has also suggested red “relates to our lifeblood and that connection between all of us”,[4] and that it symbolises both vitality and violence.[6]

      The dresses are empty, so that they evoke the missing women who should be wearing them. Black has said: “People notice there is a presence in the absence”.[4][6][7]

      Some installations of the dresses have been indoors, the preferred space for the installation is outdoors. When outside, the dresses interact with nature, drawing the eye of passersby and introducing them to the MMIW issue through information panels.[4] Some critics feel the installation is more powerful in natural environments,[6] but others have highlighted the impact within the urban environment in emphasising this is not purely a rural issue.[7]

      always moving to see them…I did 1 shoot with empty red dresses myself several years ago…I found the experience difficult…lingering feelings…I respect the years of work the t both Jamie Black and Mufty Mathewson have done…the final report entitled Reclaiming Power And Place states the persistent and deadly violence against Indigenous women and girls is a form of genocide. We must do better.

  6. Oh the red dresses. So heartbreaking 🙁
    And I love the Buddha quote.

    • it’s been years since I’ve driven this highway…and yes it was haunting and powerful to see the empty dresses…only one left on the way back…Ram Dass’s words…worked in my hedy head 🤓☺️❣️

  7. follow the red dress.

    • yes Gavin…the power of the red dress…although I wasn’t expecting to see these ones…but of course I was reminded that these empty red dresses would a part of the REDress Project…part of an art installation to memorialize girls and women who have been taken from their own homes and families. This intersection is at the The Highway of Tears is a 725-kilometre (450 mi) corridor of Highway 16 between Prince George and Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada, which has been the location of many murders and disappearances beginning in 1970.

      the empty red dresses do linger…it’s powerful project for sure…I put some links at the bottom of the post if you care to red a wee bit more ~ hugs and peace hedy ☺️

  8. Beautiful images Miss Hedy … how very sad

    • Yes 😌 it’s heartbreaking…the dresses make awareness possible even after many years…they linger and we can do better. 🤓😀 smiles and joy your way Julie ☺️☀️✌️

  9. Love it. A red dress with a “tête jaune”? 😉

    • Part of the reDress project…and Tête Jaune Cache was named after a Métis fur trader and trapper named Pierre Bostonais who guided for the Hudson’s Bay Company in the 1800s. Bostonais was nicknamed Tête Jaune by the French voyageurs because of his blonde hair. (Tête Jaune is French for yellow head.) 🤓✌️ have a joyful day Brian 💫

  10. So much sadness…

    • 😔💛 it’s a tough project for sure Mic…it’s a piece of the narrative…also many work with other project to teach children safety…knowing the project and seeing these traveling the highway was jolting…it was unexpected 😌 but powerful and yes we can do better sending peace and joy…

  11. The Red Dress Project is a very, very good thing. More and more attention needs to brought to bear on this issue. It’s an uphill struggle but little things like what you saw on the highway are helpful – very moving. Down here, I do hear about it from time to time but not enough. And I’m heartened when I see great indigenous women actresses on some of the TV shows, like a woman who’s on The Coroner. Every little step…

  12. p.s. Highway of Tears is new to me, thanks for the link.
