A group of women in Regina made their way to Fort Qu’Appelle Tuesday night with the hopes of speaking with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The women stood outside the Teepee at the Governance Centre in Fort Qu’Appelle, holding a banner with the words “Forgotten People” painted on it.
Eveningstar Andreas was one of those women.
She lives in Regina’s North Central and calls it a dangerous place.
Andreas says living in Regina’s North Central you are subjected to gangs and prostitution on a daily basis.
Carmel Crowchild says she’s concerned with the growing suicide rate among First Nations people in Canada.
Crowchild says there is also not enough being done with the inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.
She hopes the Prime Minister can make improvements to the conditions First Nations people face in urban settings.
