On Friday, May 5th The Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council adopted Resolution 23-097 to recognize May 5th as Murdered and Missing Indigenous Persons Awareness Day. SCIT joins in support of other Tribal Communities, local governments and the State of Michigan in creating awareness of this epidemic.
This resolution assists in reaffirming SCIT’s commitment to ending the “Silent Crisis” that happens all too often within Native Communities nationwide. By continuing to raise awareness we can work together to find ways to prevent and resolve incidents of violence perpetrated against American Indians.
