New mural to honour MMIWG in Winnipeg’s west end

 

A new mural is going up on a well-known building in Winnipeg’s west end.

The piece, led by Metis artist Kenneth Lavallee, is honouring missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

APTN’s Brittany Hobson finds out it’s also about reclaiming space in the city’s urban centre.
