Details:Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls is a human rights crisis. Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls is a national tragedy. This exhibition draws from the experiences of families and communities who have lost a loved one. The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls were mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties, nieces, cousins and grandmothers. Native women face murder rates more than 10 times the national average. Homicide is the third leading cause of death among native girls and women aged 10 to 24; and the fifth leading cause of death for native women aged 25 to 34. This ongoing tragedy affects all Indigenous women and girls from all walks of life and throughout many communities and cities. For the most part, the endeavors of families to locate their loved ones have been grassroots efforts. There have been organized searches and campaigns of awareness on social media. The messages read, “Have you seen this child?" Families are told their loved one literally vanished, without warning. Long victims of violence, native women and their families will no longer be silent. Their stories are being told. The art in this exhibition is to raise awareness of the murder rates. This art is to provide hope to return our stolen sisters. This art reflects the strength, resilience, and determination of our Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls survivors and their families.
