If you are like me, you have been thinking a lot about the release of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) report this week. I have been trying to learn more about the use of the word genocide, and the complex conversations that we are being asked to engage in as Canadians based on this report. It is important, and challenging, and painful. And deserving of reflection. I am still figuring out how I feel about the use of the term genocide in this context, but thought I would post links to some articles I have read that have been interesting and useful in my journey.
- Canada’s MMIWG Report Spurs Debate on the Shifting Definitions of Genocide
- Clearing the Plains continues with the Acquittal of Gerald Stanley
- Settlers with Opinions (maybe a bit of a tangent, but thought provoking and highlights many many different components that are relevant to the broader conversation)
