Our women, girls, and children are being taken from us in an alarming way. This particular fact hits home for; I come from a home of 5 sisters. As of 2016, the National Crime Information Center has reported 5,712 cases of missing American Indian and Alaska Native women and girls. A number that has only increased over several years. Strikingly, the U.S Department of Justice missing persons database has only reported 116 cases.
The majority of these murders are committed by non-Native people on Native-owned land. The lack of communication combined with jurisdictional issues between state, local, federal, and tribal law enforcement, make it nearly impossible to begin the investigative process.
It is on us, those left behind, to finish the fight. Help us find and defend our sisters. The proceeds from this campaign will be donated to help fight and educate against violent acts on women.
