Jessica Sinclair is not  letting COVID-19 slow down her awareness raising work.

The 18-year old member of the Office of the Treaty Commissioner Youth in Service project, and put up a banner to raise awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

Jessica put up a large banner in her neighbourhood on May 5 to let people know that Indigenous women are mothers, daughters, and sisters and “we are working towards better lives for our next generation.”

She wants to, “bring awareness to different communities and areas of Saskatoon and maybe they will educate themselves on Canada’s Indigenous people and our history.”

In a message to our team Jessica said she hopes people will have a better understanding of young Indigenous women and Indigenous history.

“I also hope they do some research and spread the word that our Indigenous peopled do go missing and they are murdered. I pray one day our Indigenous women and men stop going missing and we grow stronger together not only as a community but a country.”
