A player on the Univeristy of Saskatchewan womens volleyball team, Averie Allard, wears the acronym MMIW down her leg in photos featured on the teams account. It appears to be a game day tradition for her, an educated guess taken from the photos provided by the instagram account of the team. Allard brings repeated awarness to the missing cases and murders of Indigenous women across North America. Leanne Betasam brings up the same topic in "i am graffiti". The poem brings up how western society has attempted to brush away this issue Indigenous peoples are facing.
