In June 2019, the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls published its Final Report documenting thousands of human and Indigenous rights violations perpetrated by the Canadian state and its institutional actors. It designated the sum of these violations as genocide, arguing from the perspective of history and of law that the only way to understand the violence against Indigenous women and girls in Canada is in these terms. To do so, the historic and unique process of the National Inquiry gathered thousands of testimonies from families of those missing or murdered and from survivors of violence impacted by the historical and contemporary legacies of colonization in Canada.
This webinar delves into the testimonies and experiences of those who were part of this process, maintaining the importance of intersectional and Indigenous-led storytelling in documenting genocide, both in the past and in the present.
