About Missing and Murdered
Indigenous Persons

"Far too often, murders and missing persons cases in Indian Country go unsolved and unaddressed, leaving families and communities devastated."

- Deb Haaland, US Secretary of the Interior

The red handprint is a symbol of the MMIP movement, and represents the thousands of Indigenous persons who have been silenced.

In the United States, Native people experience higher rates of violence than all other ethnicities, and 56% of Native women have experienced sexual violence.
