Elder and Knowledge Keeper Support

The MMIWG2S+ genocide is painful for all our Indigenous relatives. It is important to care for one’s body, mind and spirit when encountering content relating to any form of violence.

NWAC Elders are available to connect with family members who have been impacted by the loss of a missing or murdered loved ones to ensure that they feel heard, supported and cared for. They can provide virtual emotional, mental support and spiritual guidance that is grounded in Indigenous knowledge and healing for family members and survivors of MMIW2S if needed while completing a reporting form or reading the content on the Safe Passage website. Our Elders facilitate a safe and trauma-informed space and can listen, provide teachings, offer thoughts, and answer questions to help nurture emotional, spiritual, and mental well-being.

If you have been impacted by the loss of a missing or murdered loved one, our Elders and Knowledge Keepers can provide emotional support and guidance that is grounded within Indigenous knowledge and healing practices.
