    Marion Buller on Urgent Need to Address Genocide in Canada

    Marion Buller on Urgent Need to Address Genocide in Canada

    In this episode, we talk to the Honourable Marion Buller, the former Chief Commission of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada.

    Marion is a member of the Mistawasis Nêhiyawak - a Cree First Nation in Saskatchewan.

    The National Inquiry considered oral and written testimony and evidence and reviewed tons of research and submissions before concluding that these grave human rights violations against Indigenous women and girls amounts to genocide – both historic and ongoing.

    Warning: This show discusses violence, sexualized violence, death and other forms of trauma inflicted on Indigenous women and girls.

    Given the recent revelations of unmarked graves near Indian residential schools and understanding that people may be triggered with discussions related to trauma, Canada has created a 24-Hour Crisis Line for Indian Residential School Survivors and Families: 1-800-721-0066.

    You can read the Final Report of the National Inquiry here:
