ST. PAUL - A newly released report has found that hundreds of indigenous women have gone missing or murdered in the U.S. Northern Plains region, including both North Dakota and South Dakota, since 1900. But in reality, that number could be in the thousands.

According to their report released Monday, Nov. 25, the Sovereign Bodies Institute -a nonprofit, indigenous-led research organization studying missing and murdered indigenous women and girls, or MMIWG, has documented 411 such cases from the Dakotas, Montana and Nebraska since 1900.
