Thousands go missing every year, and most are never seen or heard from again. Raising awareness of the issue, and of the things that can be done to help bring our Stolen Sisters home – is key to finding a solution!

Murder is the 3rd leading cause of death of Indigenous Women in the US and Canada

This issue impacts every Indigenous Community, and many of us have either lived with the spectre of a missing family member or are CURRENTLY living with it.

By raising awareness of our SL community to this issue, we hope to help create the pressure for systemic changes that will help bring home not just missing Indigenous people, but ALL people who go missing.

We will share music from our Indigenous Artists, and celebrate the culture of our people in a modern context
