Learn about generations of Indigenous families seeking justice for every Missing Murdered Indigenous Woman, Girl, Two Spirit, and Relative. Moderated by Simona J. Charles, social worker, member of the sovereign nations of Purepecha and Shoshone-Paiute Tribes, and local advocate for MMIWG2&R, this conversation will discuss the epidemic of MMIWG2&R, the ongoing plight of violence happening to Indigenous community members, and activism to raise public awareness. 

Panelists include Indigenous activist YoNasDa Lonewolf (Oglala Lakota/Black), Tanae LeClaire, MSW (Ihanktonwan/Sicangu/Black), Eric Pinto, MSW (Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, Zuni), and the relatives directly impacted by MMIWG2&R.

Following the panel discussion, audience members are encouraged to visit an art installation inspired by Métis artist Jaime Black-Morsette’s REDress Project. The seven dresses included in this installation represent Missing Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Two Spirits, and Relatives. The number seven indicates the Seven Generation Principle that “every action and decision made must consider the impacts on generations to come”.
