About This Project

The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) reported on the causes of all forms of violence against Indigenous women and girls, including sexual violence. More than 2,300 people from every province and territory participated in the Truth Gathering Process, resulting in a Final Report presented to the Government of Canada in June of 2019.

Role: Project Manager for the MMIWG Indigenous Language translation of the Executive Summary. Working with Ayaya Communications in Iqaluit, I carried out a national search for 11 people to translate the 37,000 word document.

Location: Throughout Canada

Key Achievements:

  • Researched major Indigenous languages by region, province, territory, linguistic family and number of speakers.
  • Managed the translation of the 120-page, Executive Summary Report into 11 Indigenous languages: Inuktitut, Innuinaqtun, Mi’kmaq, Mohawk, James Bay Cree, Innu-Aimun, Ojibway, OjiCree, Plains Cree, Dene and Gitxsan.
