Chris Cuestas Micro Method Workshop 3
Still working through the meat and potatoes of constructing a Tribally based MMIP Task Force. Chris speaks to how this workshop is not just a recipe book give to tribes, but a guided effort to complete and sustain the formation of a task force. We remember why task forces are relevant and encouraged via a result of Savannah's Act. Chris also emphasizes the importance of assessments, data and how that can give communities a head start on the pulse of what activity is going on and how to find solutions.

Strategies communities and families can take in order to address MMIW/MMIP, human trafficking, gang violence and why identity is important for safety. Chris also shares with us a successful MMIW case he was able to be apart of and help bring a woman home to her family.
Much needed podcast
As an indigenous woman who was raised on my reservation, whose grandmother attended boarding school and who has survived domestic violence, I am so thankful to hear this podcast. I can’t thank you women enough for standing strong and tall and getting our stories out there. My children’s grandmother on their dads side has been missing for over a decade now and nobody is even looking for her. I’ve survived every form of abuse growing up on the rez and I attended a public school off the rez and had to endure the teachers there, being racist to me for being Native American. When I played sports for our Rez school, and we had to go 35 miles away to play, the crowd on the other teams side would shout “GO BACK TO THE REZ WHERE YOU DIRTY INDIANS BELONG!” whenever we were winning. It was awful.
Thank you for bringing our culture and unfortunately our statistics to light and hopefully ppl will wake up and start to see how big of a problem MMIW really is. It’s just sad that nobody else cares about our missing women and men.
I’m a non native woman living on p’squosa land in the PNW. I heard of this podcast through the fall line. These women do such an amazing job of educating on MMIW and also on their cultures. Washington State is rich with native culture and I’ve always wanted to know more than the likely inaccurate info I was given through school as a young child. Keep up the awesome work! I appreciate your podcast and getting to be a part of your stories in this way.
