Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls - Final Report

The report can be downloaded here:

First Nations, Inuit, and Métis women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA people live with an almost constant threat to their physical, emotional, economic, social, and cultural security. As families, survivors, and others shared their truths with the National Inquiry, it became clear that, for the majority of Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA people living in all settings and regions, security is a key area where violence against Indigenous women and girls can and should be addressed.

That is what this thread is about. 

In this thread the findings of the report are not up for debate even if solutions are. The report says it is genocide so that is what it is. The report identifies man camps as an issue therefore they are. At this moment I don't want to explore either topic because other threads cover the "is it or isn't it genocide" debate. I want to start reading the report from the beginning and discuss aspects as I go along rather than searching out the chapter on man camps. 

I intend to take some time reading the beginning of the report and probably won't comment for a few days as I head back into child care. 

I hope that other people will also explore the report from the beginning to discuss the findings from the perspective of wanting to take concrete steps to end the violence.
