Stolen Sisters: The Story of Two Missing Girls, Their Families and How Canada has Failed Indigenous Women is the English language translation of Soeurs Volées: Enquëte sur un feminicide au Canada.
Originally published in 2014, Emmanuelle Walter's book examined the case of two Kitigan Zibi teenagers missing since September 2008. Maisy Odjick and Shannon Alexander disappeared from their First Nation in western Quebec and have not been located. French journalist Walter spent two years investigating the national crisis of murdered and missing Indigenous girls and women. The author tries to demonstrate this disturbing tragedy through the case of these two teenage young women, Maisy Odjick and Shannon Alexander. Using personal testimonies, interviews, press clippings and official documents, Walter pieces together the disappearance and loss of these two young lives, revealing these young women to us through the voices of family members and witnesses.
Stolen Sisters is a moving and deeply shocking work of investigative journalism that makes the claim that not only is Canada failing its First Nations communities, but that a feminicide is taking place. The translators for Stolen Sisters are Susan Ouriou and Christelle Morelli.
