MONUMENT TO THE MISSING — A life-sized bronze monument honouring missing and murdered indigenous women and girls was recently unveiled near the main entrance of Saskatoon police headquarters. Created by artist Lionel Peyachew, the sculpture depicts Red Star Woman, a fancy dancer with her shawl as wings. The Saskatoon Tribal Council (STC), the City of Saskatoon and the Saskatoon Police Service (SPS) collaborated on the construction of the statue, with funding from STC, SPS and the province of Saskatchewan.
