The Thompson Local News


The first three days of hearings in Winnipeg for the national inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls wrapped up late last week.

 

Chief Commissioner Marion Buller said that they came to Winnipeg to open a space where they could learn more about indigenous laws, because there are many that they don’t know yet.

 

The inquiry heard from six experts on Indigenous law and decolonization as a part of their information gathering process leading up to the fall community hearings.

 

The hearings were held at the Human Rights Museum, which some are calling a controversial location as the museum doesn’t use the word genocide when talking about the treatment of Indigenous Peoples by the Canadian government.

 

The next national hearing will be in Montreal on October 2nd, with a community hearing being held in Winnipeg the week of October 16th.
