Events planned around day of awareness for Native American women who've gone missing
An event designed to record testimonies about Navajo women who’ve gone missing will be held at the Navajo Nation Museum in Window Rock this week.
Organizer and film-maker Charmaine Jackson calls it a tribunal for women who’ve gone missing. Families of Navajo victims will address advocates and experts. Jackson said those testimonies will be recorded and collected for elected representatives to listen to.
“I think it’s more important if it’s written down and recorded and submitted and I think that’s being the next step to awareness and attention," she said.
The event will take Thursday and Friday. It’s planned around a national day of awareness about Native women who’ve disappeared.
It is a free event but the museum’s auditorium has limited seating. RSVP at [email protected]
