Talking Circle: Supporting Families of Missing or Murdered Indigenous People

When a loved one goes missing or is murdered, the family experiences profound trauma, grief, and pain; the long-lasting impacts of a Missing or Murdered Indigenous Person (MMIP) are felt by entire communities. Support and services are available to assist families as they search for a loved one or seek justice on behalf of a family member. On May 3, Lenny Hayes moderated a discussion with Carolyn DeFord, Rachel Fernandez, and Agnes Yellow Bear during which they shared services benefiting MMIP families, financial resources to support these efforts, and the healing impact survivor services can have on MMIP families.
