Join us for this online workshop to learn about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada.
This presentation will begin with a summary of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls proceedings and findings. From this context, the ongoing crisis of MMIWG will be explored, historically and structurally, with a particular emphasis on the colonial foundations of violence against Indigenous women in Canada and across settler colonies.
The presentation will conclude with a discussion of two case studies which will include detailed accounts of gender-based violence.
