CHIPPEWAR illustrates a proven fact that resource extraction ‘man camps’ cause an insidious spike in missing and murdered Indigenous women.

The rate of missing and murdered Indigenous women is staggering as it continues to grow into the thousands. These numbers have not alarmed the Canadian Government. Former Prime Minister Harper, when asked about the issue and calls for a formal inquiry, replied “Um it, it isn’t really high on our radar, to be honest…”.

This attitude, that Indigenous women are not valued, has infiltrated the Canadian public.

The United Nations defines this as GENOCIDE.
