No More Stolen Sisters Missing & Murdered Indigenous People

For decades, Native American and Alaska Native communities have struggled with high rates of assault, abduction, and murder of tribal members. Community advocates describe the crisis as a legacy of generations of government policies of forced removal, land seizures, and violence inflicted on Native peoples.

The Red Dress Project seeks to honor and raise awareness about missing and murdered indigenous people and began in 2010 after artist Jamie Black launched her continuing REDress art installation.
