Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women

The Union of BC Indian Chiefs, Grand Chief Stewart Phillip (Seal Nation) is in his fifth third year term as president and has taken a prime role as an aboriginal title and rights supporter. Chief Stewart talks about the Missing Women’s Inquiry and how the fact that there is very little aboriginal representation, speaks to the loss and the dismissal that aboriginal people have suffered at the hands of government. He speaks about the Inquiry’s provincial governments  terms of reference and the Frank Paul Inquiry. The Highway of Tears and all the other missing and murdered aboriginal people in Canada are evidence of the lack of a governmental effort to protect aboriginal women.
