Brown Baby Moccasins

Decorative/Traditional arts by unknown

Donated by the women of the Conseil de bande d’Unamen Shipu to honour the women who could not share their truths; the missing and murdered women. Moccasins are the first shoes a child wears; they wear moccasins from the day they are born until adulthood. These moccasins represent the first steps of a baby and symbolize helping children move forward in life. They are meant to protect the child from all harm and hurt, and so, the empty booties symbolize the spirit of a missing child.
