Native Women’s Association of Canada: Faceless Dolls Project

In 2010, the Native Women’s Association of Canada in collaboration with Gloria Larocque, creator of the “Aboriginal Angel Doll Project”, created the Faceless Dolls Project. As stated on their website, “their goal was to visually and physically create a representation of the 582 known cases of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls.”

This project was supported through families, community members, educators, and organizations both Indigenous and non-Indigenous who have made Faceless Dolls. These dolls are a visual representation of “strong and beautiful Aboriginal women who have become ‘faceless’ victims of crime.”  This project is ongoing as Faceless Dolls are continuing to be made, and are showcased on a traveling art exhibit touring throughout Canada to honour the lives of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls in Canada.
