Default Thousands of Native women and girls have gone missing

(Setting up safe houses and patrols in native communities by trustworthy people should be high on the list) This is a serious epidemic and should be treated as such)

Indigenous Women Have Been Disappearing for Generations. Politicians Are Finally Starting to Notice.

Women on the Yakama Indian Reservation in Washington state didn’t have any particular term for the way the violent deaths and sudden disappearances of their sisters, mothers, friends, and neighbors had become woven into everyday life.

White has become a leader in the movement to address the disproportionate rates of homicide and missing persons cases among American Indian women, but the first time she heard the term “missing and murdered Indigenous women” was less than two years ago, at a Dakota Access pipeline resistance camp at Standing Rock.
