Sask. woman wants inquiry into missing, murdered Indigenous men

 


A small group of Saskatchewan women is pressing for more national attention to missing and murdered Indigenous men.

On Wednesday, Colleen Whitedeer, her mother and two friends took a walk along Highway 11 near Regina. They carried a shirt showing a picture of Timothy Charlette, Whitedeer's brother, who has been missing since October 2014.

"There's an inquiry looking into missing Indigenous women but there's really nothing about Indigenous men," said Whitedeer. "In my research, I found there's actually more Indigenous men missing than women: There's 1,800. And I want to give a voice back to men."
