Interior Secretary Deb Haaland announced a new unit within the Bureau of Indian Affairs that plans to tackle the decades-long crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous people. “Violence against Indigenous peoples is a crisis that has been underfunded for decades,” said Interior Secretary Deb Haaland. “Far too often, murders and missing persons cases in Indian country go unsolved and unaddressed, leaving families and communities devastated.” ⁠

The Justice Department has reported that on some reservations, Native American women are murdered at a rate more than 10 times the national average. Tap the link in our bio for more on the new unit. ⁠

  1. This is good, black and brown people not valued and often their cases never get the attention and due diligence they deserve.

  2. Werre da fuck was this at for our african ancestors. On one hand I’m proud of her efforts but still it’s sad that our people’s history is either forgotten down played or mislead hope we get this same energy too

  3. 👏👏 I hope the Native American population increases within our society. They are the true origins of our country ❤️

  4. where’s the respect? where’s the credibility? where’s the love? where’s the honor? where’s the appreciation? are humans really that lost they don’t see others but their selves and their personal self gratification? wake up ppl, learn to treat and respect the Native’s atleast like their lives mean something just like ur lives mean something to you and ur family. Don’t trap yourself with your faulty actions and then blame the world for the consequences.

  5. Political power is important. Love it. Prioritizd the plight of native Americans. Represent them well.

  6. Native americans are true americans no matter what! I agree with this! If theres any native denying people, move them to north korea and imprison them
