Photojournalism: Loretta Saunders Vigil/Rally

Loretta Saunders Vigil/Rally: March 5, 2014

Laura Saunders is one of over 800 missing or murdered Canadian Aboriginal women since 1990. For many years the Aboriginal community has been calling upon the federal government to launch a public inquiry into the high numbers of missing and murdered Aboriginal women, so far those calls have gone unheeded.

At the time of her death Loretta Saunders was writing her masters thesis on missing and murdered Aboriginal women.

PS: Apologies for the extended absence, life issues took precedence over photography for a while. I hope to be back at it soon.

Journey of the Nishiyuu” rally, March 25, 2013, Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Too often images from rallies such as these are crowd shots that focus on the number of people in attendance, I chose to dedicate equal time that day to the individuals who gave of their personal time to make the crowd.

This image is part of the “Faces in the Crowd” series on Flickr.
