Taking Control: Canada’s Aboriginals Compile Own Database on Missing and Murdered Women – ICTMN.com

Two grassroots organizations in Canada, No More Silence and Families of Sisters in Spirit, have teamed up to compile the database, which was launched on September 12. The database will record the date of disappearances and deaths of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls. It will hold details such as date of birth, nation, childhood and family background, education and work history, level of permission for use of data, and primary contact information.The need for the database is twofold, organizers said. Andrea Smith, an author, scholar and Native American anti-violence activist from southern California, recalled a time not so long ago when the issue of violence against indigenous women received little visibility. It wasn’t until women raised awareness about the issue that government funding began to shed light on the problem. But that didn’t come without its own price.
