Unmask The Silence Campaign

This campaign launched by Peterborough’s STRUTT, displays ten pictures of girls from the Cree Nation of Wemindji holding butterfly masks to spread the awareness about the missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Canada. The photographs were taken by Paisley Spence Photography and the campaign was directed by Christina Abbott.

The Peterborough Canada website states that “The butterfly is the national symbol behind the struggle to combat this crisis; it represents the individual beauty of each woman that is missing”. Each of these pictures depicts statistics and facts about the missing and murdered women.
