The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women is coming to Yellowknife.
MMIW will make a quick visit to the NWT capital this summer before the official inquiry takes place in November.
“Before the community hearings can take place however, much work must be done,” says Chief Commissioner Marion Buller. “These visits are to lay the ground work for the truth gathering process that will take place this fall. This ground work is critical. We learned that from our experience in Whitehorse. We need to prepare not only ourselves but also help the communities prepare for our arrival.”
