DONATE MATCHING FUNDS
TO THE CAUSE
This site was built by concerned citizens of the Blackfeet Nation. It's a project started by students and Staff at Blackfeet Community College. We were approved for a $25,000 grant from the Montana Dept. of Justice. Your donation will provide matching funds.
The disappearance of Ashley Loring HeavyRunner on the Blackfeet Reservation has spurred more questions than answers about crimes against Indigenous women, human trafficking the number of Native Americans that go missing each year. Local citizens have taken action to prevent future investigations from being compromised. This means creating a task force of concerned citizens, local law enforcement, state & federal agencies that have the resources to follow up on leads and preserve evidence found in a timely and professional manner. We know the healing from systemic violence, substance abuse and historical trauma will not be cured overnight, but the infrastructure to protect our people is being built. With the help of the Blackfeet Community College, local law enforcement, and the Montana Department of Justice this site will be a reporting hub for Missing and murdered Native American in Montana. Our efforts start with a reporting portal for the Blackfeet nation and with the help of the Blackfoot Confederacy this may well become an International reporting portal for MMIP.
