Saturday march shines light on 'stolen sisters' Indigenous women in Victoria and across the nation will lead memorial pandora gold and silver charms marches Saturday to honour their missing and murdered "stolen sisters.
" "Our main focus for the [Stolen Sisters] memorial march is that people will be able to come together and honour the women we've lost, and give space to community healing," said Jessica Dawn Humphries, part of the collective organizing the event. She said the event is unique in that it is organized by indigenous women and helps give them voice. The march began in Vancouver's Downtown cheap genuine pandora charms Eastside 25 years ago in response to the murder of a Coast Salish woman. The first Victoria march took place in 2009. Sarah Leggeat said she marches in honour of a family member who was murdered in the late 1980s. Though it happened before she was born, "it really can destroy a whole family and affect the community," she said. "It's hard not to get emotional." Leggeat, who is enrolled in the indigenous family and support program at Camosun College, said she wants to bring awareness to the issue. "Women are still going missing. This should not be happening." According to Amnesty International, indigenous women are four times more likely to be murdered than other Canadian women and three times more likely to be victims of a violent crime. The organization has called the situation "a national human rights crisis." Calls for a national inquiry increased after an RCMP report last year noted pandora charm deals that hundreds more aboriginal women were murdered and missing between 1980 and 2012 than previously thought. Many of the cases remain pandora beads online unsolved. The stories in the past year of Marlene Bird, a Saskatchewan woman who was found slashed, burned and barely alive in Prince Albert, and Tina Fontaine, whose body was pulled from a Winnipeg river, brought further attention to the issue, as did the resilience of Winnipeg teen Rinelle Harper, who was assaulted and left for dead. The Conservative government will meet with representatives from the Assembly of First Nations and aboriginal groups this month to address the inquiry issue, as well as programs to prevent more violence. Sarah Hunt, a community based researcher and organizer, said that while an inquiry is important, positive change could be made by supporting aboriginal initiatives. "Within a lot of communities, there are initiatives that are doing great work, but are underfunded," she said, citing intergenerational women's groups that explore cultural practices and community response teams as examples.
"Violence against [indigenous] women is still kind of normalized. People get outraged and mobilize over pipelines, but don't see this as big an issue. It is," she said.
