I honour and mourn for all the Indigenous women and girls taken and murdered.
I long for justice and for the hearts and minds of the police – who are not seriously investigating these murders – to be cleansed of racism and bigotry.
I hope for healing and strength for the survivors.
I acknowledge my role in dismantling and eradicating power structures of violence and colonization.
I uphold Indigenous joy and rage, not just their oppressors’ narrative of sorrow, and the lands and living cultures Indigenous peoples embody.
