The lyrics are powerful. So are the images.

Young girls, being victimized in their own homes. Young women, disappearing on the street.

A video, created to warn First Nations women and girls of the dangers they face on the street, is being put together with the backing of more than 30 communities who have lost people now counted among Canada's missing and murdered indigenous women and girls.

It comes as Canada prepares to hold an inquiry into the issue.
