as a way of dealing with
‘grief and pain’
is how the Toronto Star presents the impact of a video being produced by No More Silence and Aboriginal Legal Services about missing and murdered Indigenous women.
Audrey Huntley, co-founder of No More Silence — as the MWMC readership would recall — and one of its creators has indicated that she is prepared to screen the movie at UofT once it is out in February 2017.
FYI – a quote from the Star article on Thu., Aug. 18, 2016 by
…[for] the families of the 1,181 aboriginal women and girls who have died or gone missing since 1980, there is no closure. So when Cywink was approached by Audrey Huntley, co-founder of No More Silence, to be in a video for families that have lost a loved one in a violent way, she couldn’t say no.
“I’m doing this because I may never have justice for my sister’s murder,” said Cywink, whose sister’s battered body was found at a native historical site near London, Ont. “The only way that I know justice will be served for my sister is if I do something proactive. I do something involved, and actually do something. I guess this is the way I feel my sister’s memory will be served best.”
