Yesterday I wrote about the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and People. My friends of the Great Plains Action Society held an event at Sioux City, Iowa. See videos and related stories Great Plains Action Society. And below are posters related to NO MORE MMIR
I just want to say thank you to everyone who helped and being flexible! Everyone that was supposed to be there, was there I wanted to share right away, but have other footage to look through. I can’t even express the gratitude and respect to all the families who traveled and did their truth telling I hope that we all continue to demand change and justice for our #MMIW#MMIR#MMIPThis was an event to bring the community together and what I saw was a collaborative effort and healing tonight. Love you all!My friend Trisha CaxSep GuWiga Etringer
May 5th, is the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and People. Yahoo News is about the only national news organization to report on yesterday’s events that I’ve found so far. Group Performs Traditional Ceremony in Portland to Honor Missing or Murdered Indigenous People. My friends at the Great Plains Action Society organized a powerful event in Sioux City, Iowa, but it looked to be sparsely attended and mainly by Indigenous people. I’ve heard the personal stories of my friends. And know this is related to the man camps of construction workers, building pipelines. Tragic because we need to stop building fossil fuel infrastructure.
