The hearings of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls heard testimony today from an Algonquin woman from the Nipissing Territory and her experience in Canada’s justice system.
Diane Sere spent four years in prison for breach of trust.
“I was regularly being exposed to discrimination, racism, sexism, inequality and oppression. I had so much anger and was troubled. I was looking for support and was unsure where to get it.”
Sere says she was denied a Gladue report because she didn’t look Indigenous enough.
