Statement from Nahanni Fontaine on the National Inquiry on MMIWG

Today reflects the thirty-plus years of courageous and resilient work that families of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls across the country have pursued in honour of their loved ones. Today marks the culmination of a long and difficult journey in gaining recognition and justice for MMIWG families' daughters, mothers, sisters, grandmothers, cousins, lovers and friends.

This is an historic moment for Canada, and indeed, for families and communities across the country.
