Ribbons raising awareness of missing and murdered Indigenous women

This week, Windsor Law’s Shkawbewisag Student Law Society organized the third annual #MMIWG Red Ribbon Tie-Up campaign to raise awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit people.

The week-long event is held in partnership with the UWindsor Native Student Alliance.

Each day, the groups have taken turns leading interested students to tie seven red ribbons in different areas for a total of 35 ribbons across campus. Each ribbon represents one of the seven Grandfather Teachings: Respect, Honesty, Truth, Humility, Courage, Wisdom, and Love.
