1,200 aboriginal Canadian women have gone missing over the past 30 years. Hashtag asks #AmINext?

On Aug. 17, Winnipeg police pulled the body of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine out of the Red River near Alexander Docks.

The scope of the tragedy prompted Holly Jarret of Hamilton, Ont. — cousin to Loretta Saunders, an indigenous woman who was murdered in February at age 26 — to launch the #AmINext hashtag earlier this month.

So, what’s being done about it? | Follow micdotcom

Hundreds of people gather in a vigil to honour and remember Tina Fontaine and Faron Hall; both are first nations who were recently found deceased. Tina Fontaine was found in a bag in the river, murdered.

Media reports have come in saying that those marching have filled Portage and Main in Winnipeg.

We need to combat racism and prevent further violence and death to first nations people, but especially women. Canadians should not forget about this.

Kahnawake Mohawks decry proposed education reform

"As the Conservative government tabled a sweeping reform of First Nations education Thursday, the Kahnawake Mohawks said they haven’t once been consulted about changes that will affect teaching inside their territory.
Furthermore, the reserve’s band council claims it has attempted for months to contact the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) about the proposed education bill and has been met with “radio silence.”
Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced his government would table the First Nations Education Act in a ceremony alongside AFN National Chief Sean Atleo on Feb. 7. At the time, federal Aboriginal Affairs minister Bernard Valcourt told reporters the bill came after “unprecedented levels” of consultation with Canada’s aboriginal peoples.
But First Nations groups across Quebec, including the AFN’s own Quebec-Labrador branch, say they haven’t been privy to discussions about the bill and that Atleo has no authority to negotiate with Ottawa on their behalf. (…)”
