The Native Women’s Association of Canada is holding Sisters In Spirit vigils to honour missing, abused, and murdered women across the country today. According to the NWAC website, there are more than 582 missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls in Canada. As you may recall, last month, Canada rejected the UN’s call for a review of violence against Aboriginal women.

Regina’s Sisters In Spirit vigil will be held at the First Nations University this evening from 6 to 8pm.
