The RCMP seeks your help in solving cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is looking for your help in solving outstanding cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

Every year, for a period of 10 weeks, we highlight specific cases on social media. The start of the campaign in October was chosen to coincide with the Sisters in Spirit Vigil held by the Native Women's Association of Canada each October 4th.

How the public can help

This initiative is an opportunity for communities across the country to be involved by sharing information that may generate tips for investigating officers. With the public's help we hope to bring these missing women and girls home, and seek justice and closure for families in unsolved homicide cases.

Elder Jim Potts

Elder Jim Potts, Insp. (ret'd) Mah-ki-ki-Maqua. (Medicine Bear) in Ottawa in June 2020.

In the language of my father "Boozhoo" (Hello and welcome)

At the moment I am in Prince Edward Island on the traditional territory of the Mi'kmaw, I thank them for sharing this beautiful place.

Creator, please join our circle as we honour missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and gender diverse people.

While I was searching for the words for this prayer, an Eagle landed high on a tree less than 150 meters from where I was sitting. Our Elders tell us the Eagle is a symbol of truth and justice, which is so needed right now. Seeing the Eagle reminded me; far too many are in unfathomable pain. Only patience and honest communication will lift this cloud of darkness.

Together, you will find the healing path.
Creator, please walk with them as they search for the truth.

Meegwetch, Chi Meegwetch
