Missing and murdered aboriginal women honoured in Regina


REGINA – While many were celebrating Valentine’s Day, February 14 was also a day to recognize and remember missing and murdered indigenous women. The first annual Saskatchewan MMIW round dance took place Sunday.

“We know that a lot of people are celebrating their loved ones today,” round dance volunteer Nickita Longman said. “This is our way as a community to come together and show our support for people who are missing loved ones.”

The round dance was organized by Lisa BigEagle, who knows better than most the extent of the MMIW issue.
