    This isof a mediation on feminicide then an inquiry This does not mean it is a bad book It isn t It is well written overall The examnaiton of racism and how it plays into the disappearance of two girls is good At times, however, Walter injects herself too much into the story This doesn t seem to be any self centerness or anything, butlike she wants you to be as moved as she was I enjoyed the book, but I wanted a bitdepth to it.

  2. Savannah Savannah says:

    A very important read all about how Canada has failed and continues to fail in helping MMIW.

  3. Sandra Sandra says:

    Very well written story that conveys the agony, frustration, and hopelessness of two Aboriginal families whose teenage girls went missing in 2008 in Quebec Years later these families are still fighting to find out what happened to Maisy and Shannon and raise awareness of the many other missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada What perplexed me about this book was that the author chose to include pictures of buildings and wooded areas where the girls had been searched for, but no picture Very well written story that conveys the agony, frustration, and hopelessness of two Aboriginal families whose teenage girls went missing in 2008 in Quebec Years later these families are still fighting to find out what happened to Maisy and Shannon and raise awareness of the many other missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada What perplexed me about this book was that the author chose to include pictures of buildings and wooded areas where the girls had been searched for, but no pictures of the girls Considering the girls have not yet been found and this book revolves around their families struggles to find them I found the choice of pictures included in this book odd one would assume theplaces where the girls pictures are the better to raise awareness of their case and the many unresolved MMIW cases in Canada

    While this does suffer a few problems resulting from a journalist from France trying to absorb First Nations culture and history very quickly, it is nonetheless a powerful book designed to wake Quebeckers up to the crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women happening in our midst This is not just a problem taking place in the West, on the Highway of Tears The book is written with passion and anger and while I m not the target audience for it, it s a great introduction for a non Indigenous While this does suffer a few problems resulting from a journalist from France trying to absorb First Nations culture and history very quickly, it is nonetheless a powerful book designed to wake Quebeckers up to the crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women happening in our midst This is not just a problem taking place in the West, on the Highway of Tears The book is written with passion and anger and while I m not the target audience for it, it s a great introduction for a non Indigenous reader who knows nothing about MMIW and wants a starting point

    3 stars I think that every text that sheds light on the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls MMIWG crisis is worth a read If you learn even one thing, or if it makes you think or question or criticize or empathize I think it s worth a read And I think this is true even if you run into difficulties related to the writing, as I did with this one It s probably important to mention that this is a translated text Because of this I tried to be tolerant of fragmented sentences and 3 stars I think that every text that sheds light on the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls MMIWG crisis is worth a read If you learn even one thing, or if it makes you think or question or criticize or empathize I think it s worth a read And I think this is true even if you run into difficulties related to the writing, as I did with this one It s probably important to mention that this is a translated text Because of this I tried to be tolerant of fragmented sentences and lack of clarity in certain sections, but what I struggled with most actually was the quantity of information and manner it which it was presented to the reader I felt at times that that the numerous statistics and references to other MMWIG cases distracted from the story of Maisy and Shannon s disappearance I felt that the open letter by Maisy s mother, Laurie, in the appendix was an effective read heartbreaking summary of the challenges families of MMIWG face, while still keeping Maisy and Shannon in focus Finally, Walter is originally from France and does not identify as Indigenous, surfacing issues and considerations related to the OwnVoices movement All in all, I still think this is worth a read solely for the content, but in the future I will bemindful about reading Indigenous writers

    I really wanted to love this book I was hoping for a proactive and forward thinking narrative that called on stories of missing indigenous women to make it s point I couldn t finish this book I felt it did no justice to the heartbreaking stories of the young women who are missing or murdered, and instead simply called out all of the unfair treatment with no serious and helpful suggestions on improvement Anyone can point out a problem and write a story about it, and anyone can link current I really wanted to love this book I was hoping for a proactive and forward thinking narrative that called on stories of missing indigenous women to make it s point I couldn t finish this book I felt it did no justice to the heartbreaking stories of the young women who are missing or murdered, and instead simply called out all of the unfair treatment with no serious and helpful suggestions on improvement Anyone can point out a problem and write a story about it, and anyone can link current problems to things that have happened in past centuries But once the reasons and causes of the unfair treatment have been established and understood, what good does it do to continue repeating the same thing for 50pages until readers give up and turn to aproactive source

    I came to see Indigenous identity as being both a vulnerability factor and the very cause of every vulnerability. Walter s work highlights the minimal attention missing murdered Indigenous women receive in Canada and how harmful it is Using both statistics and story, Walter describes the issue of missing murdered Indigenous women, particularly Maisy Odjick and Shannon Alexander who have been missing now for ten years This is not an easy read, but is still one that I highly recI came to see Indigenous identity as being both a vulnerability factor and the very cause of every vulnerability.

    I really wanted to like this book because I think that the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women is a HUGE issue in Canada and it s important that books are written about this issue However, I felt like the author of this book hopped around to semi related topics and other cases too much rather than just focusing on the two cases that are introduced at the beginning of the book Because of that I felt like I just ended up relearning a bunch of stuff I already knew about the issue inste I really wanted to like this book because I think that the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women is a HUGE issue in Canada and it s important that books are written about this issue However, I felt like the author of this book hopped around to semi related topics and other cases too much rather than just focusing on the two cases that are introduced at the beginning of the book Because of that I felt like I just ended up relearning a bunch of stuff I already knew about the issue instead of being able to expand on my knowledge

    A very disturbing look at Canada s antipathy and aloofness regarding missing and murdered indigenous women I never even heard of these two missing teens in Maniwaki, Quebec which says a lot about our criminal and media systems How can two teens go missing and I ve never heard of them If they were not indigenous, there would be a cavalcade of police, media and volunteers searching everywhere for them It has now been ten years that they are missing and this is the first I have ever heard of th A very disturbing look at Canada s antipathy and aloofness regarding missing and murdered indigenous women I never even heard of these two missing teens in Maniwaki, Quebec which says a lot about our criminal and media systems How can two teens go missing and I ve never heard of them If they were not indigenous, there would be a cavalcade of police, media and volunteers searching everywhere for them It has now been ten years that they are missing and this is the first I have ever heard of them There is definitely something very wrong which needs to be righted

    Walter sheds light on a very important and heartbreaking history and present day situation on which all Canadians should educate themselves Her investigative work is valuable It s interesting to read a book written at the end of the Harper years The writing style, however, is difficult to work through There are many sentence fragments, poorly crafted phrases, and basic grammatical mistakes Because of this the message came across diluted All in all, it s still worth a read solely for the co Walter sheds light on a very important and heartbreaking history and present day situation on which all Canadians should educate themselves Her investigative work is valuable It s interesting to read a book written at the end of the Harper years The writing style, however, is difficult to work through There are many sentence fragments, poorly crafted phrases, and basic grammatical mistakes Because of this the message came across diluted All in all, it s still worth a read solely for the content, but I d turn to Indigenous writers such as Audra Simpson and Dian Million in the future
