WINNIPEG – Artists are reclaiming the space in inner cities and on highways where many Indigenous women have suffered violence or disappeared.

From June until August, the Resilience Project is putting the work of 50 Indigenous women artists on 167 billboards from coast to coast.

There will be two on Highway 16 in B-C between Prince George and Prince Rupert _ an area known as the Highway of Tears.

Curator Lee-Ann Martin says it was a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on residential schools.

Martin says it will showcase that Indigenous women are not just victims.

She says they are visible, powerful and should be celebrated.
