The names provided here are only a portion of a larger list kept on Missing/Murdered Women and Children of Newfoundland and Labrador. The unique history of Newfoundland & Labrador makes identifying those with Aboriginal background more difficult than other provinces, in that the Indian Act did not come into play until Confederation with Canada in 1949 at which time, Ottawa was informed there were no Aboriginal people within the province.  Clearly, that was flagrant misinformation, but that was an official statement made that has taken a long time to correct.  Aboriginal background is often not recorded in police reports, court records, or newspaper articles and so we often rely on family and community members to come forward to report the missing/murdered person’s ethnicity. The people of Newfoundland & Labrador have often been denied and shamed into silence about their Aboriginal background.

The larger list being kept includes missing/murdered children (male and female). The rationale behind this is that children are still part of their mother, and attackers also sometimes use harming children as a way to harm their mother.

This page is dedicated to providing information about missing and or murdered First Nations, Inuit and Métis, Two Spirit, or trans identified people. We would like to expand the dialogue and focus on MMIW to include those who fall outside of Euro-centric male/female gender and sexuality binaries.

Gender based violence also impacts Indigenous women and Indigenous people who are part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning intersex, and asexual (LGBTTQQIA) community. LGBTTQQIA people often don’t fit gender binaries, or other Western categories of relationships and identities dictated by mainstream culture and as a result experience increased amounts of violence. This has resulted in the continuance of hundreds, if not thousands of disappearances and deaths across these lands.
