Awareness for Missing and Murdered Native Women and Girls resolution to be introduced in Congress
BILLINGS - U.S. Senators Steve Daines (R-MT) and Jon Tester (D-MT) and U.S. Representative Ryan Zinke (R-MT) have introduced a resolution to designate May 5, 2017 as National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Native Women and Girls.
The resolution was drafted in memory of the birthday of Hanna Harris, a member of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe who was murdered in July 2013.
It also comes on the same day that RoyLynn Rideshorse, who was beaten and burned in April and left to die in a field, passed away.
