human rights and Indigenous rights abuses and violations committed and condoned by the Canadian state represent genocide against Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA people. The steps to end and redress this genocide must be no less monumental than the combination of systems and actions that has worked to maintain colonial violence for generations. A permanent commitment to ending the genocide requires addressing four pathways, namely:
historical, multigenerational, and intergenerational trauma;
social and economic marginalization;
maintaining the status quo and institutional lack of will; and
ignoring the agency and expertise of Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA people.
These Calls for Justice represent important ways to end the genocide and to transform systemic and societal values that have worked to maintain colonial violence.
