Butterflies Take Flight

Butterflies in Spirit is a dance group consisting of family members of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG). With a mission to raise awareness of violence against Aboriginal women and girls, Butterflies in Spirit has performed at numerous gatherings and events throughout Canada, the US, and has traveled as far as Bogota, Colombia to perform at an International Women’s World Peace event. On stage, members of the group wear shirts depicting images of their missing and murdered loved ones.

Recently the dance group has been invited to perform and/or take part in workshops internationally in Fargo, North Dakota (August 23rd, 2019), Arcata, California (October 12th and 14th, 2019), Austria (November 2019), and Australia (August 2020). We are fundraising to help pay for these trips. Some costs will be covered but some won't.

We will be fundraising however we can leading up to each event. 

Thank you in advance for your support and donations.
