Senator Daines Urges Committee Hearing About Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women
U.S. Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) is urging the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs to have a hearing about missing and murdered indigenous women.
Daines sent a letter concerning the subject to the committee this week.
Ashley Loring HeavyRunner, Roylynn Rides Horse, and Hanna Harris are just a few names of missing and murdered indigenous women in Montana.
The letter states the people who go missing on reservations often go unreported. If they are reported, there is a high volume of cold cases that are never resolved.
Daines wrote they must do everything in their power to help with the crisis and holding a formal discussion is the next step.
He urged the committee to have the hearing in early October.
