In this episode we reveal the truths about Missing and  Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). This issue has become an epidemic within indigenous communities throughout the United States and Canada over the past decades. When indigenous women and members of native communities began to question and look for available data on their loved ones who had gone missing/murdered, they immediately discovered that such data almost didn’t exist. It became evident that no one was really keeping track. The statistics spoke for itself, the more digging folks did the more proof they had to show that those individuals had long been forgotten about. But not for long, as community members and leaders have began pushing for more studies to be done, while spreading awareness about the topic, these under-reported stories are being told. It is actions like these that uncover so much injustice and hurtful truths about how indigenous people are less prioritized when it comes to violent crimes/disappearances. The media tag #NoMoreStolenSisters has become a popular use when identifying the issue online. It was great having Indivisible Tohono (IT) come out and share about the work they’ve done regarding this topic and why it is important to keep pushing and pressing leadership on and off tribal reservations. You will hear both personal and political experiences from group members of IT who are representing all indigenous communities dealing with this concern.
