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).
