Explosive New MMIW Documentary "Say Her Name" Dubbed Eye-opening by Mainstream Media as It Spotlights an Epicenter of the Crisis

BIGHORN COUNTY, Mont. - President Biden has said of the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) crisis, "What's happening to Indigenous women on reservations and across the United States is unconscionable and outrageous. And it is devastating that families are conducting their own searches for missing loved ones. It must end."

President Biden's statement epitomizes what a new documentary film, Say Her Name, exposes in Bighorn County, Montana. The county, which includes parts of the Crow and Northern Cheyenne reservations, has been called "an epicenter of MMIWG cases" by the Sovereign Bodies Institute.

"Say Her Name" peels back the layers of platitudes and obfuscation that has become standard operating procedure for authorities with jurisdictional responsibility for MMIW/MMIP cases, and instead provides an insight that is both heart wrenching and inspiring, as the families of loved ones demonstrate incredible strength and spirit as they recount their experiences.
