The White Buffalo Woman Council stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and our Black relatives against racism and violence. WBWC condemns violence that terrorizes Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Immigrant, and Communities of Color everywhere. We recognize our intertwined histories and impacts of colonialism.
We must continue to call out the systemic racism that has benefited for over 500 years off of POC. We believe if we act in solidarity mobilizing our communities we will move closer to Liberation for all.
#MMIWG2S – Missing and Murdered Indigenous Womxn, Girls, and Two Spirit
4 out of 5 of our Native women are affected by violence today.
The U.S Department of Justice found that American Indian women face murder rates that are more than 10 times the national average.
Indigenous women and girls are murdered at a rate 10 times higher than other ethnicities and it’s the third leading cause of death for our Women (Centers for Disease Control). The majority of these murders are committed by non-Native people on Native-owned land. Because of the lack of communication and coordination between state, local, and tribal law enforcement, it’s difficult to hold perpetrators accountable.
