Growing Number of Aboriginal Women in Canada Ask: 'Am I Next?'

Sandra Lovelace Nicholas

Following the first-ever national roundtable on missing and murdered indigenous women, it is with a heavy heart that I am writing about this ongoing tragedy — a national epidemic of violence that persists in devastating more families each year, prompting a growing number of aboriginal women to ask: “Am I next?”

Excellent, wrenching commentary. To address, or even to acknowledge “this horrific tragedy,” would go against the enveloping mythology of “post-colonial, progressive, liberated” modernity.

Can’t even say words like patriarchy or colonialism in what passes for “national dialog.”
