Our Daughters and our Mothers: The Tragedy of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls
In 2014, a report prepared by the RCMP stated that 1,181 Indigenous women were murdered or went missing between 1980 -2012. During the same period, Indigenous women and girls, who make up only 4% of the female population in Canada represented 16% of all female homicides. In response to advocacy from the Indigenous community, the government of Canada, in 2015, established a National Inquiry to shed light on this tragedy, and to understand examine and report on the systemic causes of all forms of violence against Indigenous women and girls. The mandate of the Commission is drawing to an end, but the work must continue. Our speakers today will talk about the work of the commission and what it means to all Canadians and to the national projects of healing and reconciliation.
