Native Counselling Services of Alberta releases new resources to support families of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People in Alberta

On the National Day of Awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, BearPaw Media and Education, a department of Native Counselling Services of Alberta, is honoured to have released a set of Indigenous legal education resources for families of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People.

BearPaw’s newest resources were created with Missing and Murdered Indigenous People’s family members and advocates in Alberta and beyond. Our resource package is culturally relevant and trauma- informed. It is intended to support other families of MMIP through the missing persons and homicide investigations processes with supports. All shed light on the realities of the issue of MMIP in Canada and provide options for families to self-determine through legal systems and finding community supports.

The resources are available for free to family members, service providers, and educators. Digital access and online ordering are available on BearPaw Media and Education’s website.

Importantly, NCSA recognises that the solutions to the overrepresentation of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, 2SLGBTQ people and men, go well beyond these resources. We hope one day, these resources will no longer be required for our communities.
