Why Are So Many Indigenous Women Going Missing and Being Murdered? (with Rosalie Fish) Change Agents
Today on Change Agents, an IRONCLAD original, Andy Stumpf speaks with Rosalie Fish about the crisis of missing and murdered indigenous women.
Rosalie is a member of the Cowlitz Tribe and a runner from the Muckleshoot Reservation in Auburn, Washington. She is a women’s track and field athlete at the University of Washington, where she was recently selected for a prestigious Truman Scholarship from the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation. She often runs and trains with a red painted handprint on her face, dedicated to Indigenous women and girls who have been killed or disappeared.
Countless have gone missing, though numbers are hard to track for a variety of reasons. For example, as NativeHope.org notes, “The National Crime Information Center reports that, in 2016, there were 5,712 reports of missing American Indian and Alaska Native women and girls, though the US Department of Justice’s federal missing person database, NamUs, only logged 116 cases.”
Today on Change Agents, Rosalie talks about how this violence has affected her own family and indigenous communities around the country, and what can be done to address it.
