Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls Need More Than ONE DAY of Awareness



ONE DAY IS NOT ENOUGH, PLEASE SHARE
#MMIWG  Missing Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls get little national press.

UPDATED to add this new news on legislation from Sen. Mike Crapo:

While recognizing information on the number of missing Native Americans in the United States is limited, the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs included these alarming statistics in a report on S. 227, Savanna’s Act. The legislation is named for Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, a 22-year-old member of the Spirit Lake Tribe of North Dakota murdered in 2017. The Committee reported, “While Savanna’s tragic death became widespread news, many other Native Americans go missing or are murdered each year.” However, DOJ and the Bureau of Indian Affairs’ Office of Justice Services (BIA-OJS) told the Committee that many of those cases go unreported or unresolved.

Tribal and Administration witnesses also informed the Committee that the increased coordination and communication between law enforcement agencies outlined in S. 227 would improve the response to cases of missing or murdered American Indian and Alaska Natives. I co-sponsored Savanna’s Act to improve response to cases involving missing or murdered Native Americans:

The bipartisan legislation would direct the DOJ to formulate new guidelines for addressing and reporting cases involving missing and murdered Native Americans;

Tribal access to federal crime information databases would be improved; and

Certain federal agencies would be required to seek recommendations from Tribes on enhancing the safety of Native women.

It's an epidemic!

I first heard about the plight of the indigenous peoples on NPR a few years ago and it touched me deeply.
I heard of Ashley and Kimberly Loring and I wrote poem to express my sorrow over all I had heard.
A year later, Kimberly and several other people asked about the poem.
It became a song during that time and so I shared it with her and now I share it with everyone.
I used to direct people to Ashley's page at the open mic's but the pandemic has changed our world.
I hope Ashley's found and the true reasons why all this is occurring amongst the people is uncovered.

I hope the Indigenous women are found along with the 60,000 Black women that are missing as well.

I want to be involved. As a non-Native American I feel we have treated this Nation badly. I am a writer and would love to write the stories of these missing women and girls. Please contact me rebeckavigus@gmail.com

I sitting in Germany saw that film 'Wind River' and it impressed me a lot. And yes the hunter did the right at the end of that film.

What the idiotic virtue signaling nonsense is this? Are missing & murdered indigenous women & girls somehow more important than other missing and murdered women and girls?

Do other women and girls matter LESS?

Anonymous said...

No one is saying Indigenous women and girls are more important. The fact is, they are not given as much importance as they deserve.

REBECCA ALLISON said...

We are all human; there are so many missing in the world. Unfortunately there are some who are not given as much credence as others (and I know this also goes for other races, gender and ages) This post is to bring to light the missing who no longer have a voice. Respect that and don't be hurtful. Pray for all, and share this post and note who you are praying for while bringing this to the forefront for the voiceless.

Of course the fucking non native would all lives matter this shit and be the exact reason this even exists.

When 100 women go missing and 70 of them are all similar, yes, we should give them more importance, because that goes from random missing persons to likely a serial kidnapper or killer. When multiple blonde mid30s women in one neighbourhood go missing in the same week, the cops are all over that shit, but when it's natives they dont give a shit. It's not that natives are more important, it's that natives arent seen as important *enough*

I’m extremely disappointed by Canadian Govt not helping our Aboriginal Missing & Murdered Woman of Canada. I’ve been writing for 24 years with no answer on our Bill-C-31 Reinstated $40,000.00 that my late mom in heaven never received.
This case lies stuck in Deadlock at The Supreme Court if Canada.
We must have Justice fir our People. Indigenous Woman Urgently need help, Campbell River is owned & controlled by Hells Angels and I’m scared to live here. They stalk me when I’m driving in town, Police do not help nor do they care, they said they cannot do a thing.
Please help Elected Chiefs to Stop riding on Gang Violence & Drug Trade. Prime Minister Trudeau needs to Stop trusting Elected Chief & Counsel & give us our money thru bank deposit only.
We need protection from the evils of this world desperately. Fake chiefs have left me living in black mould for 24 years. I’ve never had help once because I’m a Bill-C-31 Aboriginal Woman. I��������
Ps—During Corvid19 Homalco Band sry up Roadblock for On-Reserve Hells Angels Drug Dales, plus they are paying themselves big money Govt Trudeau gave them on our behalf. Nepotism Must Stop, Drug Sales must stop!!!!

You're clearly a lame, bigoted piece of shit bitch, as nobody here other than YOU brought up anything with the word "black" in it, and decided to project your fuckery and bullshit hate onto people who aren't even against your LAME ass. Go suck your mother hoe.

They should fight harder next time, then they won't lose their land. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hi OPechenga,

I am also trying to spread awareness of injustice against Native Americans in my community. There are a fair amount of people who are advocating to remove the racist Native American mascot from a local school, and I think your support and word would hold a lot more weight than mine.

If possible, please leave your support. If not, I still appreciate what you've been doing to push back for the rights of Native Americans.

Mrz Lopez said...

You seriously had the nerve to say "next time fight harder and you won't lose your land" my ancestors had tomahawks and bow an arrows while the imposters had guns, does that sound fair, my ancestors were minding their own business when "some people" showed up and slaughtered them, thats sounds like the people with guns are cowards who steal land, rape women and children cause they felt they could, if your ok with that behavior regardless the race or color of the person skin then you are just as sick minded as your ancestors that rode in on the ships.


I dont have to reply as anonymous, cause I'm not a coward!

Anonymous said...

No, they were not slaughtered. Your ancestors were approached in a civil manner and your ancestors responded with murder. That's war a clear cut declaration of war and your ancestors died in it. Don't sting someone if you're going to cry when you're bitten in return. And don't act like your ancestors didn't steal land as well. What's hilarious is that the Whites didn't HAVE to give you anything in the form of reservations. They could have just killed you all and that would have been the end of it. In contrast, your ancestors left nobody alive in their battles.

Also your whole "YOU'RE A COWARD FOR REPLYING AS ANONYMOUS" is just grasping for straws to make your argument appear more valid. Replying as anonymous has no bearing on your argument or mine.

History is determined by the victor, get over it.

To the Anonymous troll who only came on this forum to try and spread your hate. Its only showing everyone that your pathetic life is worthless and no loves you. The point of this forum is to bring awareness to missing and murdered indigenous women. This is fact in Canada that when someone who is indigenous goes missing almost nothing is done, but as soon as 1 white women goes missing everyone is working on trying to find them. The Hwy of tears is a perfect example of this, no one cares until 1 white women from Kamloops went missing and then they took it seriously. All lives matter not just white people! For you to say fight harder next time?! This just shows everyone that your a disgrace to the human race. It's 2020, take you kkk shit and fuck off.
