NWCC holds vigil for missing and murdered indigenous women

A small vigil for missing and murdered indigenous women was held at the Northwest Community College in Terrace today.

The noon-time meeting saw a dozen people gather at the campus’s longhouse.

Madeline Keller-MacLeod is with the NWCC Students’ Union, which organized the vigil.

She says every October 4, the Native Women’s Association of Canada organizes a national day of action to highlight the issue.

She adds that approximately 1,200 indigenous women and girls have gone missing or have been murdered over the past 30 years.
