"I asked these two young ladies to hold up the sign so I could post it on FB and help shed some light on this terrible tragedy" -- Mark Sloane in Reno, Nevada

Thousands of women rallied across the United States on Saturday at 2020 Women's March events around the country. Among the thousands were Indigenous women who displayed Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) signs to bring attention to this tragic problem across America.

Participants and observers at rallies around the country provided photographs to Native News Online.

The numbers relating to this epidemic in Indian Country are staggering, as evidenced by these #MMIW Fast Facts, courtesy of the American Indian Health Service of Chicago:

The truth about Indian Boarding Schools

This month, we’re asking our readers to help us raise $10,000 to fund our year-long journalism initiative called “The Indian Boarding School Project: A Dark Chapter in History.”  Our mission is to shine a light on the dark era of forced assimilation of native American children by the U.S. government and churches.  You’ll be able to read stories each week and join us for Livestream events to understand what the Indian Boarding School era has meant to Native Americans — and what it still means today.

This news will be provided free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts.  Any contribution of any amount — big or small — gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change. Donate to Native News Online today and support independent Indigenous journalism. Thank you.
