She is our Daughter, our Sister, our Relative.
We grieve because Savanna will never be the Mother she was meant to be.
We grieve because her daughter's spirit chose Savanna but she will never be held in her arms.
We grieve because Savanna had her entire life ahead of her and it was stolen from her.
We grieve because they stole another one of our beautiful sisters... another one over and over.
We grieve because we have to and will need to again pull from the resilience and strength in our DNA, stronger than centuries of the effects from colonization.
We again send our love and prayers to a family who have lost a loved one, and to the community as a whole as we now collectively grieve another murdered and missing Indigenous woman.
You are loved and you will not be forgotten.
