'Blackfeet Boxing: Not Invisible': The true story behind the disappearance of Native American Ashley Loring


ESPN's latest sports documentary, 'Blackfeet Boxing: Not Invisible' is based on Native American women and their plan of action to counter the harsh treatment meted out to them. Reports have suggested these women are often victims of drug and alcohol abuse that ends with them mysteriously disappearing or being found dead. To help defend themselves against the horrid dangers, Frank Kipp, a former probation officer in Montana opened the Blackfeet Nation Boxing Club.

One of the things the documentary focuses on is the disappearance of Native American, Ashley Loring Heavy Runner. The trailer shows a shot of a notice stating her as missing with a $6000 reward if she's found. Loring went missing in June 2017 and to date, there has been no word. The Guardian has an article that could be rightfully termed as gut-wrenching. The 20-year-old's last message was to her sister, Kimberly asking her to "Send some muns [money]"
