MURDERED AND DISAPPEARED NATIVE WOMEN
“Murdered and Disappeared Native Women is a project of Native Women’s Society of the Great Plains to promote awareness on Native 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, news media, brochures and other awareness methods can help effectively to address the issue of Native women who have disappeared, especially in grassroots homeland to leadership. Promoting 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. No one knows what you stand for if you don’t have a platform.
