Expressions of Humanity – Indigenous Women of Canada

The fourth and final event in the Cycle Expressions of Humanity, organized by Time For Equality, signatory of the Diversity Charter Lëtzeebuerg, will focus on the subject of Indigenous women in Canada.

There is little doubt that missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIW) is one of the most pressing social issues facing Indigenous communities across Canada today. It is estimated that over the last 30 years more than 1200 Aboriginal women have been murdered and many more are missing or not reported—confirming the long-held claims of Indigenous women, their organizations, and communities. 

"Finding the Patterns – Indigenous Women of Canada" creates a visual and verbal landscape to allow people to discover the indigenous people of today. Demonstrating how ancient traditions, cultures have survived and how the past has been brought into the present, moving towards the future. to convey the resilience, inventiveness and dynamism of the indigenous women of today. The arts and storytelling will enlighten participants on this contemporary issue.
