Although Aboriginal Canadian women only make up a small portion of Canada’s population (about 4.3%), they account for 11.3% of Canada’s missing women and 16% of Canadian female homicides. There are similar statistics for American aboriginal women; it’s an issue faced by indigenous people throughout the world.
Sadly, many people look the other way when it comes to the abduction and murder of aboriginal women. But it doesn’t always have to be this way. We can help spread awareness and enlighten people about what’s going on.
