No More Silence aims to develop an inter/national network to support the work being done by activists, academics, researchers, agencies and communities to stop the murders and disappearances of Indigenous women – you can reach us at email@example.com
This website was created ca. 2014 when No More Silence was beginning its work on a community-run database documenting violent deaths of Indigenous women/Two-Spirit and Trans people in collaboration with Families of Sisters In Spirit, community partner The Native Youth Sexual Health Network and with the assistance of Dr. Janet Smylie (Métis) and Conrad Prince of the Well Living House at the Keenan Research Centre. We began the work by creating a research methodology based on Ontario data. We also added community lists that folks from a few other provinces have worked on. Families asked us to include tributes to their loved ones.
Work on video resources followed including Smudge, Don’t Judge: Assisting Two Spirit and Trans Survivors of Violence, Not Just Another Case: When Your Loved One Has Gone Missing and Been Murdered. Currently, we are in production to document our Disability Justice project.
No More Silence has always embraced – community supporting community by creating our own structures independent of government and institutional funding.
Since May 2023 we have continued to build our capacity with the creation of the Raònraon (Hummingbird) Healing Lodge at Six Nations. Led by Wanda Whitebird our sweat lodge is fully accessible and prioritize community members with access needs and Two Spirit people.
