A public inquest will convene next month in the death of an Indigenous woman at the Battleford Union Hospital.

Jilissa Nighttraveller (Napitchit) was found unresponsive in a bathroom on March 24, 2021.

Staff attempted live-saving efforts, including resuscitation, but were unsuccessful. Nighttraveller was transferred to hospital earlier that day by RCMP.

The five-day inquest is scheduled to begin July 24 with jury selection in North Battleford.
