Daughters of Mother Earth, led by Chumash Elder Julie Tumamait-Stenslie and other grassroots intertribal women community leaders, are hosting and a Red Dress Day Community Event for MMIP. The Primary goal of the gathering is to give voice to California's missing and murdered Indigenous People and their families. For too long, Indigenous People have been invisible throughout the state which has the largest population of Native Americans out of any state.
Our fiscal sponsor is the Tribal Trust Foundation (located in Santa Barbara) and our Keynote Speaker is Melissa Skeet (Dine) who works full time in the MMIP movement and a survivor of relationship violence. This event is a free in person gathering open to general public, hoping to increase awareness in both Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties.

We will be joining both the state and nationwide efforts to increase awareness, advocacy and resources for support of MMIP while celebrating our traditional ways of knowing and healing. Our event does involve a moderated panel with a local DA, law enforcement, and academic researchers identifying solutions to stop the crisis, address problems with implementations of Feather Alert, and ongoing problems of under reporting.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a partner of the NEH. Visit www.calhum.org.
