MISSING & MURDERED INDIGENOUS WOMEN IN CANADA & AMERICA
Updated: Jun 11, 2021
"Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) is a recent movement to bring recognition to the disappearance and murders of Native women and girls; many in the movement also include two spirit and trans persons under the term. While the movement is new, the issue of MMIW is not. Throughout Canada and the United States, a disproportionate number of Native women go missing and/or are murdered. The exact number of missing and murdered Native people is challenging to pinpoint, as many go unreported and the media fails to give the issue the attention it deserves."
"Dena Takruri visits Winnipeg, Manitoba, where more Indigenous women and girls have gone missing or been murdered than anywhere else in the country. After years of failure on the part of police and the government, activists here are taking matters into their own hands."
