Unceded Airwaves Episode February 21, 2018

MMIWG Honouring Episode

2:00pm - 2:57pm

In season 3 episode 15- Unceded Airwaves does a special Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls honouring episode. We talk about some statistics, read the names of the CBC's incomprehensive list of the names of the MMIWG in British Columbia, Yukon, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. This episode might be sensitive to you if you have direct ties to any MMIWAG in Western Canada. Then we play music made by Indigenous women regarding these cases and trials and the epidemic of MMIWAG in the Canadian nation-state.

Thank you to all of the strong families and friends and supporters who are fighting this fight every single day. We stand with you and we support you. Thank you to our co-hosts Autumn Schnell, Madeson Singh, and Melissa Haberl for showing up every week to bring you Unceded Airwaves on CiTR 101.9FM. We broadcast from the traditional, ancestral and unceded lands of the Musqueam people. This show is put together every week by UBC's Indigenous Radio Collective, and we are committed to centering the voices of Indigenous people and offering alternative narratives that empower Native people and our stories.
