Far too many missing and murdered Native women
A similar story was told across Canada this weekend: Too many Native women have gone missing or have been murdered.
In Winnipeg, one event organizer, Hilda Anderson-Pyrz, put it this way: “As well as Aboriginal women, Indigenous women and girls we all deserve to be loved and valued and to feel safe. That we shouldn’t have to live in a society and worry about if we’re next. If we are going to be next to be murdered or to go missing. We need to feel safe. It’s our right to feel safe. ”
So on the steps of the Manitoba Legislature many rows of bouquets — shaped as a butterfly. Each flower a reminder of of so many loved ones who have been victims at of violence.
