National MMIW Awareness Day, 2021 (n-, th-, y-dialects)

This breathtakingly powerful image is the work of Angela Lightning from Treaty 8 territory, who created and photographed this installation, shared it on FaceBook, and gave us her blessing to share it here. It evokes the memory of those we’ve lost, the promise to never forget, the commitment to continue the search for those still missing, and the pledge to action that will bring these losses to an end. No More Stolen Sisters.

In tribute, Solomon Ratt has given us a single powerful phrase, to be offered prayer-like to the four directions.
