    This article also merits review, in light of missing native American women. Not discussing the serious issue of substance abuse among Native American women ignores it. And this means that federal dollars placed into a fund to raise awareness of missing native American women, takes money and focus off of an issue that is part of the problem, substance abuse.

    This article is about one teenager. The epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women is a huge issue that affects Alaska, Canada, and the US. Canada is, I believe now at least keeping track of them, but not the rest of the continent. Substance abuse, I agree causes many problems with all walks of life, not just Indigenous women.

    "The stories were heartbreaking and viscerally violent. Perrier talked about how, at just 12 years old, she was pulled into the sex trade, sold to a ship captain named Charlie, and forced to ride in the hull of a cargo ship that set out from Thunder Bay in Ontario, Canada, and then shuffled through different ports, with one in Duluth, MN, serving as a major hotspot. Stark spoke about her time being exploited for pornography and the realities of trying to get politicians to pay attention. Larsen talked about being date-raped at 57 years old, just under a year prior to the panel."

    -“If there’s no data then it’s like there’s not a problem,” Buffalo told Splinter. “It doesn’t exist.”-

    Tribes are considered sovereign but also considered a “Domestic Dependent Nation” which means that the Federal government has ultimate authority in most tribal affairs. When it comes to crime the Federal government and the US Attorneys office are responsible for investigating and prosecuting Felonies. The US Attorneys office has by and large refused to prosecute many crimes including homicide , rape, and kidnapping.

    It isn't that the Feds are refusing because they don't care. But often it is impossible to get witnesses, so prosecution just isn't possible. They don't keep a big presence on the reservations because they aren't wanted, but then when needed, they don't have the means to really be effective. Its a bad catch-22. There really needs to be a re-evaluation about reservation law enforcement. Some tribes/reservations are better than others on this, so there is no one-size-fits all solution.

    It's happening in Montana and Washington state at an alarming rate. They just found a native woman recently here. Very sad...

    That is incredibly sad. Its likely she died that same day she was taken, so I don't think a better investigation would have saved her. But that is a worthless effort by LE in that case. And then they threw away all of her stuff?! WTH? And then to walk out early from the meeting?
