A campaign by artist Christi Belcourt has produced 1,723 pairs of handmade moccasin vamps from craftspeople all over North America. Ms. Belcourt is preparing to launch a six-year, 32-stop exhibition tour that raises awareness of violence against indigenous women

The collaborative art project Walking With Our Sisters consists of 1,723 pairs of moccasin vamps – the top portions of a pair of unfinished moccasins – meant to honour missing or murdered aboriginal women.
