Billboard Project Highlights Crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People

On a winding highway outside of Missoula, towering images of Native American women with red handprints on their faces stand out against the vast Montana landscape. Alongside them, text sends a powerful message against the endless sky: "Will you look for me if I go missing?" "We are still here." "We will no longer stay silent."

It's enough to make someone stop the car.

Most billboards tempt drivers with fast-food deals at an upcoming exit or direct them to must-see tourist attractions along their route. These billboards are alerting people to a nationwide crisis: Missing and Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP).
