Official home may be coming for missing and murdered indigenous women monument in Saskatoon
City recommending statue be placed in front of police HQ
The next step to give a formal home to a statue to honour missing and murdered indigenous women is coming Monday.
Administration is recommending that the statue be placed in the front plaza of the Saskatoon Police Service's headquarters.
Police and the city offered the public the chance to vote between three different designs for the statue.
Artist Lionel Peyachew's design of a life-sized bronze sculpture of a woman named Wicanhpi Duta Win, or Red Star Woman, won. The sculpture shows a fancy dancer with her shawl as her wings.
If the statue is formally approved, Peyachew will be given three years to finish the project.
