Support for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and their Families (Community Database)

It’s time for community to build our own structures independent of government and institutional funding. The purpose of this database is to our honour our women and provide family members with a way to document their loved ones passing while asserting community control of our own record-keeping.
The database will document Indigenous women, Two-Spirit and Trans people who have gone missing, or died as a result of violence. This could include murder, manslaughter, ‘accidental’ and suicide, as well as deaths which families and communities have deemed suspicious and are unsolved or for whom answers or justice have yet to be found.

#ItEndsHere: The Full Series
Over the past two weeks, we have been running a series of posts confronting the crisis of violence against Indigenous women and girls, to declare: #ItEndsHere. We are committed to eliminating all forms of violence within Indigenous communities, including violence based on gender and sexual identity and orientation. Please read and share these powerful words.
"First, I want to cite Susan Blight: ‘It is not about you being inclusive,  [decolonization] is about you being included under our laws, relations, and ways of being’.  The killing of Indigenous women is an extension of the genocidal practices of the colonial mother country and it is intended to eliminate the decolonization of Canada as a mother country.   It is not simply about “ending violence”, the violation is the colonial order, that rests on our lands, our homes, our lives and kills either overtly [killing young women, slaughters our lineages forever] or covertly, assimilation, reconciling without restoring our nations.  The people in  this country need to own up: this is not Europe, Africa or Asia, it is Turtle Island.  Political struggle is the struggle of one set of laws versus another.  In this country that means our laws must prevail, our sensibility must prevail.  We are all about “all my relations”, this is the centre point of our legal systems, everyone in this country, in order to be a ‘decolonized’ citizen must ascribe to this and protect the mothers of our nations and the future mothers of our nations, so that we may live within and transmit to everyone our laws and our relational teachings, that we may all live in peace.  Anything else contributes to genocide." — Lee Maracle
