#MMIW, Indigenous peoples, Canada and the rest of the world…

Just because we don’t have guns killing us, tanks rolling into our communities or the military and militarized police showing up in our backyards (when in fact we have in the past had this happen and we do have this happen in our communities, just look at Oka, Elsipogtog, etc), it doesn’t make what is happening to Indigenous peoples especially Indigenous women and girls (who are going missing and murdered continuously with no mention in the media sometimes) in Canada any less important and it most certainly does not make the violence that is happening in our lives and in our communities any less than what is going on else where in the world.
