This will be an MMIW awareness presentation and “WHY” campaign kick-off. Expect short documentary films, a presentation of MMIW data, stories from family members of MMIW, and light refreshments.

The unveiling of the original artwork “Why” by Jim Yellowhawk will also take place during the event.

From Feb. 10-24, you can view the 2019 MMIW Red Dress Exhibit in memory of the 70-plus Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Children and those unaccounted for in South Dakota. The installation exhibit of 70 red dresses will be draped from the cottonwood trees on the grounds at the Journey Museum.

Friends and family members of MMIW are welcome to place flowers below the trees throughout the exhibit. For more information, contact Lily Mendoza at lilym@rap.midco.net.
