Breaking Silence Over Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women

Feb 6, 2018

Between 1979 and 1992, homicide was the third leading cause of death among Native American women aged 15-34, reported Indian County Today in 2016. The Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women or MMIW movement has been working to raise awareness of the horror but has had difficulty fitting into the MeToo Movement. For this week's Sounds of the High Country, Graham Lee Brewer, contributing editor of Tribal Affairs for High Country News, talks to KDNK's Amy Hadden Marsh about his recent story on MMIW and barriers facing Indigenous women as they speak out about violence and sexual abuse.
