âpahkowâyânaw: Indigenous Education Session #3: Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW)
October 19, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
In Canada, Indigenous women and girls experience a level of violence that constitutes a human rights crisis. For many years, there have been calls from Indigenous communities for an effective and comprehensive response to this crisis as it greatly impacts Indigenous communities. In this session, we considered the roles and responsibilities of policy makers and non-Indigenous communities in ending this crisis.
We were joined by Victoria Pruden from Women of the Métis Nation.
A Q&A session was moderated to discuss the role of non-Indigenous communities in ending this crisis.
