A 47-year-old Saskatchewan woman who suffered a violent attack earlier this year says she’s still struggling to put her life back together, after being beaten, burned and left for dead.
With the recent and unfortunate announcement of Misty Upham’s death, I’d also like to say that this happened in my province not too long ago. The attack happened back in June but so little has been done for the victim, Marlene Bird.
Racism is well and alive in Canada, do not forget that. Pay attention to Native women, stop allowing these injustices to go on and be forgotten. It does not matter how old Native women are, what Native women do for a living, who these women are, none of that matters. Native women will still be targets of brutal violence. Do not ignore them or the communities that fight to bring them justice.
