Day 1: AMBER TUCCARO ~ Amber Tuccaro, a member of the Mikisew Cree First Nation. Her 2012 murder today remains one of the thousands of Indigenous Women’s murder cases that are still unsolved. Amber had been missing for a startling 2 years prior to her murder and was only 20 when her body was finally found in a Leduc county, Edmonton field. Amber was not only a daughter and sister but also a mother. Paul Tuccaro, Amber’s brother reported the negative response the Tuccaro family received from the RCMP when the search to recover her safely initially began. Paul Tuccaro, stood in front of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls as the first witness. Paul recounted how he and his family continue to seek answers on Amber’s case. Paul said one thing that really stood out to me during his testimony, which I will share below: “The police always say you’ve got to be missing 24 hours before you’re missing. But we checked and there’s no law that says that. So I don’t know why the RCMP always tells people that,” he said. “Those 24 hours are critical.”
Young Amber’s case stands as a reminder of the past cases that have so many unanswered questions, despite many years passing. We must open the dialogue to question whether this is an issue of relevance and priority? Basic prejudice? We must get to the root of the problem to begin the process of healing and preventing this from happening to our Native sisters in the future. 💜 🇨🇦 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
