LAS VEGAS — Melinde Brockie, a tribal citizen of the Lummi Nation, was among those shot during the mass killing by a lone white man in Las Vegas late Sunday night. The mass shooting left at least 59 dead and over 500 injured.
Brockie is married to Lummi Indian Business Council member Travis Brockie.
A GoFundMe page was set up by her family. The creator the post wrote the following statement:
On Sunday October 1, 2017 Melinda and her husband Travis were attending a concert in Vegas when gunfire opened. She was hit and sent into surgery last night; she is now recovering in ICU. We are very thankful for all of the love, support, and prayers being shared with the family as we try to understand how something this horrible could happen to such a beautiful soul. We are raising funds for her two sons and members of her immediate family that are traveling to Nevada to stand by her side as she recovers. We know the financial cost of everything can be straining on the family and we want this to be one less thing for them to worry about. We thank you in advance for your donations and prayers!
