120 page lined notebook with amazing artwork on the cover entitled "Respect (Buffalo): For Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women" by Anishinaabe artist Donna Langhorne, and “All my grandmothers flowers by Cree artist Madeline Belanger.

This is the second painting in the Reconciliation series. It connects the teaching of Respect, symbolized by the Buffalo, as a means of healing the deep personal and cultural trauma inflicted on Indigenous women. In the context of Reconciliation and healing, the painting emphasizes the importance of dignifying these vulnerable women who were treated by their predators as faceless, nameless, dehumanized objects. The hand prints acknowledge the individuality of those never found. Including reference to the ‘red dress’ movement, the painting promotes conditions where these women are at peace, their loss not in vain but, rather, serving as seeds for a safer, uplifting future.
