Les Femmes Michif Otipemisiwak Encourages Honouring From Home Our Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ Folks

February 14, 2021, Ottawa, ON – Every year on February 14th, Women’s Memorial Marches take place across Canada to honour the lives of murdered and missing Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ folks. Many marchers are family members, friends and loved ones of those who have gone missing or have been murdered. This year, our world has changed and the global pandemic impacts the ways that we can gather.

Melanie Omeniho, President of Les Femmes Michif Otipemisiwak (LFMO) / Women of the Metis Nation, is encouraging Metis Women, Girls, 2SLGBTQQIA+ folks and allies to honor our Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ folks from a safe distance this year.
