2nd Annual Sharing of Stories: Increasing Visibility of MMIW

Save the date for MMIW Otoe SOS.png

Increasing Visibility of Oklahoma’s Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women

Tribal community unites to share stories of heartbreak, hope, and resilience

RED ROCK – The Native Alliance Against Violence is partnering with the Otoe-Missouria Tribe of Indians Victim Services program for the 2nd Annual Sharing of Stories: Increasing Visibility of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. The event will take place on Thursday, May 2nd, 2019 from 1 p.m.-3:30 p.m. at the 7 Clans Paradise Casino at 7500 Highway 177, Red Rock, OK 74651.

The event will honor the memory of Oklahoma’s missing and murdered Indigenous women (MMIW), address the correlation between the disproportionately high rates of domestic and sexual violence and MMIW, and how we can take steps to increase safety for Native women and girls.

According to a report by the Urban Indian Health Institute, murder is the third-leading cause of death among American Indian women. This same report also lists Oklahoma as one of the top ten states with the highest number of cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

“We invite you to join us in this display of community strength. The Sharing of Stories event is your opportunity to show the families of the missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls that the tribal community is willing to support them and walk beside them in their journey”, said Dawn Stover, Executive Director of the Native Alliance Against Violence.

The event is free and open to the public and will feature keynote speaker, Renee Bourque, the Program Manager for the Tribal Resource Tool at the National Center for Victims of Crime. The event will also include remarks from John R. Shotton, the Chairman of the Otoe-Missouria Tribe of Indians, and a special cultural moment to honor the missing and murdered Indigenous women of Oklahoma.

“Yes, the statistics are startling, but these MMIW are so much more than a number. We are talking about someone’s mother, sister, daughter, or friend, and they deserved to be remembered”, said Stover.

5th Annual Gathering of Voices: Addressing Sexual Assault in Indian Country

In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the Native Alliance Against Violence invites you to attend the 5th Annual Gathering of Voices: Addressing Sexual Assault in Indian Country. The event will take place at Green Country Vo-Tech, 1100 OK-56 Loop, Okmulgee, OK 74447, April 18, 2019 from 1 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

This year’s theme is “Standing up. Speaking out. Taking action.” The NAAV seeks to bring attention to the unspoken struggles of Oklahoma’s American Indian women that have been affected by sexual assault. The event also aims at educating the community on how to respond to and acknowledge societal norms that promote violence against women.

“We want everyone to feel confident in knowing that they can take action to prevent and eradicate sexual violence. Native women are 2.5 times more likely to experience sexual assaults than other races, so it is important to demonstrate to survivors that there are steps being taken to stop the cycle of violence”, said Dawn Stover, Executive Director of the Native Alliance Against Violence.

The 5th Annual Gathering of Voices: Addressing Sexual Assault in Indian Country will be hosted by the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Family Violence Prevention Program and is free and open to the public. The keynote speaker, Olga Trujillo, is an internationally renowned speaker and author that has devoted her career to helping others understand the impact of trauma on survivors of abuse. She will be sharing her own personal story of survival and how she was able to overcome and heal from the trauma she endured.

“We are encouraging survivors of sexual violence to recognize that there are many of us who are willing to stand up, speak out, and take action against sexual assault. You are not alone in the fight”, said Stover.
