MMIW or MMIWG It doesn’t matter what acronym you pick…its all about results. Just get some results.

It has been awhile since the monument to missing and murdered indigenous women and girls was placed. A lot of water has flowed through and past and over the river junction at the heart of Turtle Island.
Seasons have come and gone. Inquiry members have come and gone. Results have been few.
Is this lip service at it’s most unproductive colonial creation?
How would a strong indigenous community handle this?
That’s the direction to go.

A song written about MMIWG:
For those who remain unaware, the black and white videography highlighting the red dress does have significant significance.
