In support of Families of Sisters in Spirit, a volunteer, grassroots, non-profit organization led by families of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls.


In Canada, over 600 Aboriginal women have been reported missing or been murdered since the 1960s. Viewers will discover what the effects of generational poverty, residential schools, systemic violence, and high unemployment rates have done to First Nations reserves and how they tie in with the missing and murdered women in the Highway of Tears cases. Aboriginal women are considered abject victims of violence.

Now find out what First Nations leaders are doing to try and swing the pendulum in the other direction.
