Fourth indigenous girl dies while in child protection
May 10, 2017
The death of another indigenous teenage girl from a Thunder Bay group home has intensified demands by First Nations leaders for an inquest into why their children are dying while in child protection.
Seventeen-year-old Tammy Keeash failed to make her Saturday night curfew at her Thunder Bay group home. Her body was later discovered on Sunday evening in the Neebing-McIntyre Floodway, according to Nishnawbe Aski Nation, a political organization of 49 northern First Nations.
