The CPN House of Hope is partnering with the Oklahoma State Chapter for Missing and Murdered Indigenous People to bring an awareness event for MMIW during the month of May.
This event – Not Invisible – will help unmask the hidden crisis and speak for those missing and/or murdered.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs estimates that there are approximately 4,200 missing and murdered cases that have gone unsolved. Violence against Native Women has been described as an epidemic. The statistics are staggering. Four out of five Indigenous women experience violence, and more than half of Indigenous women experience sexual violence.
