I Am An Indigenous Woman

—————–
Do you know an indigenous female? Is she your friend? Your relative? I hope I am your friend, because WE ALL as a people need to let this PC Government know that, the estimated 1,200 aboriginal women who are unaccounted for or have been murdered, have the right to rest in peace or be found, no matter race, colour or religion. Indigenous women make up 4.3 per cent of the Canadian population, they account for 16 per cent of female homicides and 11.3 per cent of missing women. Whether you are indigenous or not, your voice needs to be heard and we need, all of Canada, to stand by the sides of their indigenous peoples!!!

  1. LBE; Your words here are read by quite a few and give pause for thought. Out of curiosity have you ever thought of writing for the CBC on the Abiroginal page to give your words more exposure and greater weight? At times your words are like the flickering flame of a candle driving back the darkness and lighting the way to see a bit more clearly. All we can say though is keep the flame burning bright.
