Today is about honouring families and survivors of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Woman and Girls (MMIWG). It’s about bringing awareness to what is going on throughout Canada and to bring people together for healing. The higher levels of violence experience by Indigenous women and girls is a direct effect of colonization. This is a day to reflect on our shared history and the ongoing impacts. Today is a call to action for all people who live on this land to end the violence and to hold vigil as a community to honour those lost and support the friends, families, and communities who have lost loved ones. A vigil can take many forms, from a moment of silence to a rally to a community feast. All that is important is that you take some time on or around October 4th to mark the day.
