Native America Calling: The threat to Indigenous people in Canada and Mexico
Your National Electronic Talking Circle
Thursday, May 6, 2021

Indigenous people all over the world are disproportionately represented among those who are missing or murdered.

Canada released a national inquiry into missing and murdered women and others in 2019, calling for major reforms among governments, businesses, advocacy organizations and social service providers. The country likely will not meet the deadline this June for an action plan, but lawmakers just allocated more than $2.2 billion to help Indigenous women.

In Mexico, the murder of women is becoming one of the country’s top criminal issues. Lack of funding, corruption and poverty all fuel a growing crisis where few of the murders, especially of Indigenous women, are investigated, much less prosecuted.

Native America Calling will take time to look at the Missing and Murdered issue in our neighboring countries.
