E-naad-maa-get is the spokesman for a group of youth, who are walking across the country in support of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. He says he's nervous for his nieces and cousins, who may go missing.
"I felt it was better to be proactive in this instance, rather than reactive, and to begin doing work on our own level," he said.
Tianna Fillo -- who also goes by her spirit name of Niibin -- is also part of the group walking across the country for missing Indigenous women and girls. During a stop in Kenora, she talks about one of her reasons for joining the walk.
"About five years ago, when I was living in Toronto and going to school, my friend was taken. It's been a long time now, and I really miss her," she said.
Fillo notes she's just finished a post-secondary program in aboriginal justice, but she's not sure yet how she'll apply her studies.
The group passed through the district last week on their way to Manitoba.
