Audrey Huntley joined Indigenous Waves this past Monday to give some background on the No More Silence and Families of Sisters in Spirit grassroots database of missing and murdered women, including what happened to the data collected previously by NWAC for the RCMP.

Two years ago, Ian Campeau, also known as Deejay NDN from A  Tribe Called Red, launched a campaign to change the name of the high school football team, the Nepean Redskins due to it’s offensive and derogatory nature, to no avail. Since that time, Ian has launched a human rights complaint, triggering a renewed debate around the issue. Ian spoke with Indigenous Waves last year when he first began to get media attention for his actions, and joined us via phone this week for an update.

Audrey Huntley is a documentary filmmaker, storyteller and community researcher of mixed European settler and Anishinaabe ancestry, and is the co-founder of No More Silence.

Ian Campeau aka Deejay NDN is a producer and deejay, best known for his work with A Tribe Called Red. Ian is Ojibway and lives with his wife and daughter in Ottawa.
