October 4: Honouring the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women

Photo: flickr/momo

On October 4, every year, communities come together from across Canada to honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. 

"We gather to honour our lost sisters and their families. We gather to show we are a united front," notes the Sisters In Spirit Candle Light Vigil website.

For more information on the Candle Light Vigil and to find a vigil near you this Saturday, please visit the website.

We have gathered a selection of pieces that discuss the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and its roots in colonialism and white male violence, and discuss the best strategy for dealing with this epidemic of violence against women.
