From the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center:

“The crisis of MMIW is a national crime pattern. The complete storyboard for this crime pattern is not two individuals and a crime scene but all of the above–the government, culture, and economics–layered upon the lives of Native women and Indian nations. Understanding the legal and social infrastructure that place Native women in harm’s way are essential to changing this crime story of the last 500 years.

It also requires reeducation of mainstream America to understand both the past and present truths of American Indian Nations and the women of those Nations. This two-fold process of legal reform and cultural reeducation can direct the changes required at the national, state, and county levels.

The national movement calling for justice for MMIW is growing and maturing, and the unprecedented support for the 2020 National Day of Awareness is a strong indication it will not be turned back. It consists of dedicated people who are willing to take political action to impact the government to correct the past and decolonize.”
