The Murdered and Disappeared Native Women project is a project of Native Women’s Society of the Great Plains to promote awareness on Native American women who have been murdered or disappeared, to push for awareness on development of protocol and legislation and to address the issue of murdered and disappeared women. The awareness factor, along with social media, brochures and other awareness methods can help effectively to address the issue of Native women who have disappeared. Also to plogomdromote the understanding that a lack of effective action is deeply rooted in the historical treatment and negative views towards Native women. Native women were traditionally tied to the early philosophy that they represented
the lifeblood of their respective tribal nations and in order to
‘kill the Indian’ they were targeted for genocide. Currently
the Murdered and Disappeared Native Women project is creating a
display of miniature dresses, each representing a sister who has gone
missing and murdered. The display will be used to promote awareness
of our sisters who go missing and murdered and the protocols
needed in Indian country for women who go missing.
