Red Dress Day History
Red Dress Day is dedicated to honoring missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada. Indigenous people believe that spirits can only see the colour red. That is why red dresses are used to call back loved ones to their families. According to Native Hope, as of 2016, more than five thousand cases of missing indigenous women have been reported. Red Dress day is celebrated annually on May 5th.
