YES! I JUST STARTED WATCHING ALASKA DAILY
Red Road Institute is proud to announce two new initiatives protecting our people and saving lives. We do need your help to see these through.
As you might know, tribes are rarely able to prosecute non-tribal citizens for crimes they commit on our reservations. As a result, our reservations are breeding grounds for wicked people to rape, murder, and assault our people.
Because the local police are rarely allowed to prosecute crimes outside their jurisdiction, the FBI is the only department able to investigate crimes committed by non-Natives on tribal land.
In 2016, the last year these stats were kept, there were 5,712 known cases of missing or murdered indigenous women. However, only 116 were logged into the DOJ database. For over 90% of the crimes, a real investigation never happens.
So we're putting together these programs to help our people because the government will not.
