In The Thick


Sep 18, 2018

The #MMIWG (Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls) movement has been gaining momentum in the U.S. and Canada, as Indigenous women call for an end to targeted violence. Maria and Julio speak about this widespread issue with Annita Lucchesi, a Southern Cheyenne cartographer who has built the largest database of missing and murdered Indigenous women, and Jenni Monet, an independent journalist and tribal member of the Pueblo of Laguna.
