Each year, thousands of women, men, children, and 2 Spirit Native Americans go missing or are found murdered in the United States and Canada. Gaps in data make the true scope difficult to estimate, but the murder rate of Native women is more than ten times the national average on some reservations. 

This year, the Institute for American Indian Studies and the Red Sand Project are partnering on a weekend of awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous People. 

Join IAIS staff and representatives of the Red Sand Project for a screening and panel discussion of the documentary short film We Ride for Her (2024). An indigenous women’s motorcycle group rides to end the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous Women and Relatives while a member of their community desperately searches for her missing sister and tries to heal her shattered family. Co-Director Prairie Rose Seminole (Arikara/Sahnish, Northern Cheyenne), Executive Producer Molly Gochman, IAIS Educational Outreach Ambassador Darlene Kascak (Schaghticoke Tribal Nation) and IAIS Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction Irene Norman (Mohawk descent) will participate in the panel discussion, immediately following the screening.

Please note: Due to the topic, this screening and discussion may trigger strong emotions in audience members. 

This event is free and open to the public, but space is highly limited, so pre-registration is required. Please register below.
