Syilx Nation Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Gathering

December 12th, 2019

Honouring Our Sisters

Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls (MMIWG) has been a national tragedy over many decades, and has affected the Syilx Nation directly through the loss of women and girls within our communities. Contributing factors include the high rates of systemic violence against indigenous people, especially women and girls.  This Gathering aims to support and stand behind our Syilx Okanagan Nation members, families and communities who are dealing with the repercussions of losing a family member.  It brings together Nation members and community members to raise awareness, create a safe space to share stories, and spark inspiration and healing.
