‘I wouldn’t say that we’re more vulnerable, I’d say that we’re targeted…It’s not about us being vulnerable victims, it’s about the system being designed to target and marginalize our women.’

Annita Lucchesi, Southern Cheyenne descendant and cartographer 


‘In 15-years of conflict in Iraq the US suffered 4,541 fatalities. In 2016 alone, there were 5,712 reported MMIWG cases in the US. That should provide pause and context’. 

Tom Rodgers, Executive Vice President of Global Indigenous Council
