EN There is little doubt that missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIW) is one of the most pressing social issues facing Indigenous communities across Canada today. It is estimated that over the last 30 years, more than 1,200 Aboriginal women have been murdered and many more are missing or not reported − confirming the long-held claims of Indigenous women, their organizations, and communities about the scope of this problem in contemporary Canadian society.

Finding the Patterns – Indigenous Women of Canada creates a visual and verbal landscape to allow people to discover the indigenous people of today. Demonstrating how ancient traditions, cultures have survived and how the past has been brought into the present, moving towards the future to convey the resilience, inventiveness and dynamism of the indigenous women of today. The arts and storytelling will enlighten participants on this contemporary issue.

Expressions of Humanity is a series proposed by Time For Equality in collaboration with the Rotondes and with the support of the Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte. | This event is organised with the support of the Embassy of Canada to Belgium and Luxembourg.
