Abstract (English)

"In response to the increasing grassroots calls for a national inquiry on missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada, Métis artist Christi Belcourt issued a call via Facebook in February 2012 for the creation of 600 moccasin tops. The call for these decorative swatches (also known as vamps or uppers and commonly found on traditional footwear) sought to honour missing and murdered indigenous women as well as shed light on the national crisis.
