This evocative performance by Anishinaabe filmmaker Lisa Jackson pays tribute to the quiet dignity of Indigenous women and draws attention to the plight of over 1,100 who are missing and murdered in Canada. It was created through the Stolen Sisters initiative of the imagineNATIVE Film Festival.

Despite repeated calls, nationally and from the United Nations, the Government of Canada refused to launch an inquiry into over 1,200 missing and murdered Indigenous women. With a change of government in 2015, an inquiry was announced in March 2016. The film closes with the Canadian national anthem sung in Cree, one of the many diverse languages of Canada's First peoples.

This is the expanded version of the original one-minute silent work, commissioned as part of the imagineNATIVE Films Festival's Stolen Sisters initiative.
