There is a huge crisis in Canada and the USA which is overlooked by so many. Many indigenous women are either murdered or reported missing every year and very little is done about it which results in hundreds of unsolved cases.

 A 2014 report states that there have been more than 1,200 missing and murdered Indigenous women between 1980 and 2012, but Indigenous women’s groups have document the number of missing and murdered to be over 4,000. Other sources state that there were 5,646 Native American women entered as missing into the National Crime Information Centre database in 2017, with 5,711 in 2016 and in the first six months of 2018 there were 2,758.

Indigenous women are also 3.5 times more likely to experience violence that non-indigenous women and the homicide rate for indigenous women is shockingly almost seven times higher than that of the rate of non-indigenous women. In Canada in 2015, a quarter of all women murdered were indigenous. In 1980 it was 9 per cent.

The Canadian government has started a plan to help these women’s lives safer however they have delayed it and are ignoring calls to fast track it. The US government has also got a similar plan however not much seems to be happening. These women deserve justice and shouldn’t be forgotten. Use your voice to speak up for those who can’t!
