ZUYA WINYAN WICAYUONIHAN: HONORING WARRIOR WOMEN - A study on missing & murdered Indigenous women and girls in states impacted by the Keystone XL pipeline
Zuya Winyan Wicayu’onihan was a collaboration between Brave Heart Society (BHS) and Sovereign Bodies Institute (SBI), to assess scope and severity of the crisis of sex trafficking and missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG) in South Dakota and neighboring areas potentially impacted by the Keystone XL pipeline. Additionally, this project aimed to identify gaps in healthcare, victims services, law enforcement capacity, and community resources that prevent violence or provide critical support to victims, and empower tribal nations and communities to meaningfully address them.
