Story of Gloria Mildred Gladue

Gladue, from Bigstone Cree Nation in northern Alberta, is remembered by family as “bright and bubbly” and someone “who took pride in teaching her family about their shared Indigenous heritage through cooking and sewing.” In particular, she was “known for her great bannock, stew and moose meat.”

Gladue was last seen in Desmarais, AB, about 330 kilometers north of Edmonton in October 2015. Her remains were found in rural Manitoba in June 2018.

“Every life matters, especially these Indigenous women who are getting murdered left and right and now my mom is just one of those stories. It’s just not right.” – Nicole Gladue-Weesemat (daughter)
