ISKWEU PROJECT

ISKWEU PROJECT

Montreal, QC

Mission

Iskweu project is aimed at reducing and ultimately eradicating the number of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (trans, two-spirit) of Quebec. To offer support and ensure adequate response from institutions when somone goes missing. Iskweu project aims at reducing barriers to accessing support and receiving adequate response from institutions that have historically discriminated against them.

The Iskweu project is an initiative by the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal. The project wishes to respond to an immediate need for assistance expressed by families and loved ones in the case of an Indigenous woman or girl (trans, two -spirit) goes missing. 

A few words

Violence against Indigenous women and girls (trans, two-spirit) is a recurrent theme in Canada’s colonial history. The context of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (trans, two-spirit) interlocks with the trauma lived by Indigenous peoples and the various attempts, by the government to assimilate them.

For more than 30 years, families, organizations and activists have been asking previous governments and the public to bring light to this national crisis that continue to affect Indigenous women and girls (trans, two-spirit) today.

Studies indicate that there are certain vulnerabilities that increase the risk of a girl or woman (trans, two-spirit) from going missing:

  • Being homeless
  • Being involved in the sex industry/sex trade
  • Having issues with addiction
  • Being in an abusive relationship
  • Having mental health issues

The lack of proper responses, resources and practices put into place specifically to help and protect these women and girls (trans, two-spirit) contribute to this ongoing issue. Police throughout Canada and Quebec have in many instances failed in their police practices which has heavily contributed to this social crisis.
