    No More Stolen Sisters: Stopping the Abuse and Murder of Native Women and Girls | Bioneers Radio Series

    No More Stolen Sisters: Stopping the Abuse and Murder of Native Women and Girls | Bioneers Radio Series

    Jessica Alva Khadija Rose Britton. Hanna Harris. Anthonette Christine Cayedito. If you haven't heard of these women, it’s no surprise. They’re four of the untold number of Indigenous women and girls who have been murdered, kidnapped or gone mysteriously missing.
    A significant number of victims are from communities that are subjected to the harmful presence of fossil fuel and mining companies. The extractive industry is ravaging Native nations where oil and blood have long run together.
    Add to this a dysfunctional police and legal hierarchy that leaves Indigenous women and their families with little support during the first crucial hours when they go missing, and little recourse to prosecute predators for their crimes.
    In this program, powerful Native women leaders reveal the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women, and describe how they are taking action and building growing movements, including with non-Native allies. Morning Star Gali, Ozawa Bineshi Albert, Simone Senogles, Kandi White, and Casey Camp Horinek. 
    These stories are shocking, harrowing and heartbreaking. But then again, when your heart breaks, the cracks are where the light shines through.

A must listen podcast for everyone

This is my favorite podcast! The episodes are educational making you think critically about what is truly going on in the world and the brilliance of the animal kingdom and Mother Earth. It also inspires you to become an activist by exposing all the injustice and disregard of humanity and nature. After listening to this podcast, I wish I had become an ecologist!
