Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) joined Western Caucus Chairman Rep. Dan Newhouse (WA-04), Chief Marshal of the Quapaw Nation Charles Addington, Former Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Tara Sweeney, and Washington State Rep. Gina Mosbrucker on the Western Caucus podcast, “A Voice for Rural America,” to discuss the actions being pursued by federal, state, local, and Tribal governments to address the crisis of missing and murdered indigenous women (MMIW).
May 5 is recognized as the National Day of Awareness for MMIW. Native American and Alaskan Native women face murder rates more than ten times the national average and above average rates of violence. In 2020, President Trump signed into law Savanna’s Act and the Not Invisible Act, which aim to coordinate law enforcement efforts and improve investigation cases of MMIW across the country. Collaboration with state, local, and Tribal governments is crucial to delivering justice to the families of these women.
