National Inquiry for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls : Six Nations Elected Council Press Release
Six Nations Elected Council has announced their support for the families of the missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG), calling for the resignation of the current Commissioners and the re-establishment of the Inquiry Process.
“The current inquiry is based on colonial values and processes. It must be built on the strengths and resiliencies of Indigenous culture, values, ceremonies, and medicines.” – Chief Ava Hill
The Six Nations families of the MMIWG have asked that July 31st be an International Day of Ceremony to honour the victims and their families.
In solidarity with these families, Indigenous and non-Indigenous community members and organizations have been encouraged to hold spiritual ceremonies and/or take a moment of silence to continue to honour the families and spirits of their loved ones.
