A response to the ongoing, frustrating MMIWG inquiry,
Tapwewin
opens the inquiry to the voices who are not being heard: the teenager who was taken by North-West Mounted Police (NWMP) in the 1800’s to service the man; the midwife who was vilified by the priest run out of the church; the women who work the streets.
