In Canada, women from First Nations groups are much more likely to be the victims of violent crime than are other women. And yet these crimes go practically unreported in major media outlets, and are often unsolved. Organizations such as the Native Women’s Association of Canada and Amnesty International Canada have been trying to bring attention to this shameful situation.
It is these missing and murdered women that I thought about as I took a photo of a sculpture of a group of Mohawk women. The sculture is titled "Caughnawaga Women" by Marc-Aurèle de Foy Suzor-Côté (1924), and is currently on display at the Musée des beaux arts de Montréal.
