I am going to post this again with a very strong personal comment after reading some perplexing responses on Facebook. The executive order apparently includes missing/murdered men and women, but when one starts to look into the issue, it is predominantly women and girls who have been affected by this.
EVERY missing or murdered woman/girl is a major problem!!!
She is someone’s mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, friend, etc. From what I have learned investigations into missing/murdered tribal females are more complicated than investigations of non-native females due to different and multiple agencies being involved (or their lack of being willing to get involved).
Late November, we finally are seeing six inches of snow right before Thanksgiving. To the left is Mount Joseph, in the middle Ruby Peak both are part of the Wallowa Mountains in the Eagle Cap Wilderness
While I continue to learn about the native culture and its trials and tribulations, the more I read, the more I watch, the deeper the understanding, love and respect become!!!
