This situation will be reflected upon the propositions and other beliefs espoused by Taiaiake Alfred, a well-known scholar and orator who has committed himself to studying and exposing to the world the many struggles that the natives in Canada experience until today. It is the hope of this paper that beyond the discussion of violence and discrimination against indigenous women in Canada, a sense of urgency to react and act will be instilled in the reader.
If we are to look at the glaring evidences of inequality and domination in any given society, then it is but imperative that we look at how the dominating group treats or for obvious instances, maltreats the so-called subordinate group. In this case, the extent by which the powerful non-natives abuse the natives in Canada is obviously seen in how it has perpetuated and imbibed the belief that indigenous women deserve to be abused and are rightfully to be raped and murdered for the mere reason that they are natives.
Discrimination is not limited to the actual individuals who kill, rape, or abuse indigenous women, but even to the social institutions like the police and courts that have miserably failed to protect the rights of these women to the point that the victims and their families are seen to have provoked and deserved such brutalities, while the suspects are treated as if they were the real victims!
Amnesty International ( has released these sentiments towards the passivity of the Canadian government over such important concerns, and a call towards finally putting a stop and initiating a fight against the discrimination and abuse of indigenous women all over Canada:

– Second, the police force in Canada have often failed in giving the protection and security that they are ought and obliged to give to all women, irrespective of ethnicity, which therefore includes indigenous women.
– Third, the social consensus and toleration of abuse of indigenous women, physical, verbal, economic, and sexual it may be, has resulted to the unfortunate socialization of indigenous and non-indigenous men to believe that it is right and normal to believe and do so.
– Fourth, these injustices and violence towards indigenous women are agreed to be caused by racism, and may actually be carried out with the expectation that societal indifference to the welfare and safety of Indigenous women will allow the perpetrators to escape justice.
Nine horrifying cases of indigenous women who have been sexually assaulted and killed, some of which are yet to be found and considered missing until today is also reported by the Amnesty International ( For purposes of giving due respect, these cases are:
