Stolen Sisters: A One-Hour Television Documentary
In 2004, Amnesty International charged that Canada is 'putting Indigenous women in danger of kidnapping and violent deaths through racism and indifference.'

It is estimated that over 500 aboriginal women have been murdered or gone missing in violent circumstances in Canada in the past 20 years. An Aboriginal woman in Canada is five times more likely to die of violent circumstances than a woman of any other race. These women come from all over the country, and from all walks of life and economic backgrounds.

Stolen Sisters takes viewers inside this contentious issue, from the rolling farmland of Saskatchewan to the haunting depths of the dark alleys in Vancouver's dangerous Hastings district. You will hear the stories of the missing and witness one family's desperate search for their loved one. Stolen Sisters is a window to a world that most people only read about in their morning paper.
