Drag the Red searches Winnipeg river for signs of the missing and murdered

 


They gather along the shores of the Red River in Winnipeg, a small group of volunteers who meet at a makeshift memorial.

The flowers, sweetgrass and teddy bears are for Tina Fontaine, a teenage girl who was murdered, wrapped in plastic and dumped into this river in August 2014 . She is just one of almost 1200 missing or murdered indigenous women and girls in Canada.
