Native women call attention to missing sisters
Thursday, July 29, 2004

The Native Women's Association of Canada has launched the "Sisters in Spirit" campaign to call attention to an estimated 500 Native women who are missing or have been murdered.

The group is seeking 10 million in federal funds to combat violence against Native women. A representative said Native women are more likely to be brutalized.

Some Native groups say cases of missing Native women are not investigated thoroughly.

I saw this group on TV recently

Yes, if u see the Edmonton (area) and British Columbia (area) news ... it is staggering the amount of native woman are being found "murdered" or "gone missing".

I also believe that "not enuff" is done to find the person or person(s) whom are stealing and killing our native woman ... because they are not a "rich in money high profile person" ...

i don't want to rant on because i find it sad ... $rich or not ... they are some one's loved one ... mother, sister, friend and so on.
