Her Story (MMIWG)

As another way to create more visibility and education related to the topic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls, the Indigenous Cultural Academy class at Hammarskjold H.S. asked other Lakehead Public Schools classes and students to get involved in helping to paint commemorative ‘peg dolls’ to help the world remember and honour the spirit of all the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
