Among the special guests on tonight’s Native News Online’s “Crisis in Indian Country: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women” Facebook live stream will be Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, who sent a video to discuss the epidemic spread.

The live stream will take place tonight, May 5, 2021 at 7 p.m. – EDT. The informative program coincides with “Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons Awareness Day, 2021.”

President Joe Biden in a White Proclamation said:

“On Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons Awareness Day, we remember the Indigenous people who we have lost to murder and those who remain missing and commit to working with Tribal Nations to ensure any instance of a missing or murdered person is met with swift and effective action.”

The event will feature expert panelists who each bring their own unique perspectives and insights into the problem of missing and murdered Indigenous persons throughout Indian Country.

“Native News Online endeavors hard to provide current and accurate information across Indian Country. This live stream furthers our attempt to explore a very serious problem in Indian Country,” Levi Rickert, publisher and editor of Native News Online said. “We are excited with our slate of panelists who are working very hard every day to stop missing and murdered Indigenous persons in Indian Country.

Join us for this informative and timely one-hour conversation that discusses this vital issue.

Covid-19 Vaccinations in Indian Country will be co-hosted by Native News Online Publisher Levi Rickert (Potawatomi) and Managing Editor Kyle Edwards (Anishinaabe).

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

Our news is 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 — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.  Most often, our donors make a one-time gift of $20 or more, while many choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10.  Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
