MISSING ABORIGINAL WOMEN IN CANADA 3 Statement of problem Aboriginal refers to characteristics among people that show their existence to a land before the arrival of colonists or from the earliest time (Anderson, 2016). It is also known as indigenous. According to Drache, Fletcher, & Voss (2016), four percent (600, 695) of the Canadian total population in 2006 comprised of indigenous women and girls. Despite their small portion, indigenous women and girls are more vulnerable to violence than their non-indigenous counterparts.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
