New project focuses on missing and murdered cases as Indian Country prepares for change in administration

 

December 1, 2020



With change coming at the highest levels of power, tribal and federal officials are working to ensure the crisis of missing and murdered loved ones in Indian Country remains a priority for the U.S. government.

Leaders of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and the Cherokee Nation came together last week to help announce the first tribal community response plan for missing and murdered cases. The pilot project is based in Oklahoma, where the two tribes will work closely with federal authorities to develop culturally-appropriate guidelines for investigating such cases.

“The safety and protection of our people and the demand for justice are of the utmost importance to tribal leaders,” Chief David Hill of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation said at his tribe’s River Spirit Casino Resort last Monday.
