The United States is facing a human rights crisis known as the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women epidemic. Out of the 5,712 Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women counted in 2016, only 116 were logged in a Department of Justice database.

Join this event for a discussion about this epidemic in anticipation of the national PBS broadcast of “Bring Her Home” — a new feature documentary directed by Leya Hale (Dakota/Diné) and produced by Sergio Rapu (Rapanui).

A private link to the film will be made available to attendees that RSVP prior to the event.

This event will bring together participants in the film to talk about ways in which they are addressing the epidemic from their vantage point. Panelists will include Angela Two Stars, Mysti Babineau, and Representative Ruth Buffalo (ND), accompanied by Senator Mary Kunesh (MN).

The panel will be moderated by Marisa Miakonda Cummings, President and CEO of the Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center.

This event is co-hosted by Vision Maker Media (VMM) and the Center for Great Plains Studies.

VMM is the premier source of public media by and about Native Americans since 1976. Their mission is empowering and engaging Native people to share stories.
