There is an epidemic that no one is talking about outside of Indian Country—the epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Why aren’t there concrete statistics? Why do the crimes go unreported? What has the FBI done to help with this epidemic? What does “Missing White Woman Syndrome” have to do with this? Learn some history from Heather Bruegl, public historian and indigenous activist, see why this is an issue and consider what we can do in and out of Indian Country to make sure that our sisters, mothers, daughters, wives and girlfriends don’t become a statistic.
This program is the second in a series titled Voices of Indigenous Peoples for Community and Healing. Special thanks to our partners Kent District Library (KDL).
