A Conference on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two Spirit People

Keynote Speakers:

- Ntawnis Piapot, Piapot Cree Nation, multi-award winning journalist: national award for her short documentary, "It Could Have Been Me," the Canadian Journalism Foundation's 2018 CBC Indigenous Fellowship award winner and recipient of the FSIN 2018 Strength of Our Women Law/Justice, and recipient of the YWCA Woman of Distinction Award 2019. Ntawnis's work has been featured with APTN and CBC news.

- Sheila North, Bunibonibee Cree Nation, Grand Chief of Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak. Sheila is an RTNDA award winner, Gemini nominee, and joined CTW Winnipeg in 2013.

- Panels focusing on the links between the Truth and Reconciliation's 94 Calls to Action and the MMIWG2S Inquiry.

It is the hope of the event organizers that participants will recognize how the colonial society we live in has 'normalized' the crisis of MMIWG2S and that we move forward in understanding how reconciliation is fundamental to any change that might occur.

No registration is required for this free event, and refreshments will be provided.

This event is led by Canadian Roots Exchange (CRE), in partnership with Luther College at the University of Regina.
