The Story of Sandra Johnson on APTN’s “Taken”

Riveting, spine-chilling, important television, Taken confronts, head-on, the clues that link the stories of these missing and murdered women and the hope of all Canadians to resolve this tragic reality for Indigenous women, and for our nation. This week focusses on Sandra Johnson’s story.

Sandra Johnson was a pow wow princess from a loving family on the Seine River First Nation. In Thunder Bay, on the morning of February 13, 1992, 18-year-old Sandra Johnson’s naked body was found murdered. There are many theories as to who could have committed the horrible crime, but no justice for Johnson’s family.
