Decent read but comes off with very few correct facts.
Reviewed in Canada on June 29, 2021
The book conveniently glosses over the facts of the abuses indigenous women face on reserve and off.
Many of these women were abused and it is why they left the reserves and First Nation communities.
The book also tries to sell the old narrative of the police not caring, and while west coast Canada is extremely racist, there is plenty of evidence that the police did try to investigate but where turned away by the First Nation communities in the area.
Many of the disappearances were most likely done by other indigenous peoples.
As a First Nation who's seen first hand the abuses in reserves and who's seen real racism of the west coast, I was hoping this book was more than just a surface level look into the issues.
This book rehashed old myths and tales of the HOT and really only follows one side of the story.
