Métis Nation BC Honours May 5th as the National Day of Awareness, for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

Tansi Kakiyaw. Hello Métis Family and friends,

On May 5th, it is a day of remembrance for our Missing and Murdered, and a day of action to focus on safety, justice and empowerment of women, girls and two spirited relatives at risk. In the spirit of Wahkohtowin, we encourage you to take time to honor and remember our missing and murdered, their grieving families and loved ones, and those at risk right now. We ask you to think about how to help increase safety for our most vulnerable, and share awareness with understanding and compassion.

In unity, Victoria Pruden,
