Thousand of Indigenous women go missing or are murdered each year, but few statistics are available about the actual numbers. Women such as Annita Lucceshi, a PhD student in Southern Alberta, are working to compile a database of missing and murdered women. According to the National Congress of American Indians, there is a lack of federal agency coordination. As a result, many cases fall through the cracks. In 2015, 25 percent of the women murdered were Indigenous.
