Missing And Murdered Indigenous Women
Digital Art - Oil On Canvas,acrylic On Canvas, Watercolors, Oil Pastels
A piece I created to represent MMIW (Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. The missing and murdered Indigenous women (MMIW) epidemic affects our Indigenous peoples in Canada and the United States, including the First Nations, Inuit, Métis (FNIM), and Native American communities. It has been described as a Canadian national crisis and a Canadian genocide.
As a group that has been "socially, economically, and politically marginalized", Indigenous women have been frequent targets for hatred and violence. Underlying factors such as poverty and homelessness contribute to their victimization, as do historical factors such as racism, sexism, and the legacy of colonialism. The trauma caused by abuses under Canada's residential school system also plays a role. Indigenous women are between 3 and 3.5 times more likely to be victims of violent crime than other women, and the violence they face is often more severe.
***For each MMIW product that Fashion Ayasha sells a proportion of the proceeds goes to the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Children Victims and Families.
