Thousands of killed or missing Indigenous women and girls are victims of a 'Canadian genocide,' report says

The thousands of Indigenous women and girls who have been killed or have vanished in Canada in the past decades are victims of a "Canadian genocide," a report obtained by CNN partner CBC says.

The violence these Indigenous victims have faced over the years occurred through "state actions and inactions rooted in colonialism and colonial ideologies," CBC reported, quoting from the leaked report of a national inquiry.

The report, titled Reclaiming Power and Place, includes testimonies from more than 1,400 family members and survivors and 83 knowledge-keepers, experts and officials, the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls said in a statement last month.
