She’s Gone Missing (The Epidemic You Don’t Hear About): Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women
A Talk by Heather Bruegl, M.A. (Oneida/Stockbridge-Munsee)
Director of Education, Forge Project Fellowship Program
A Co-Presentation by Forge Project & Hudson Hall

When they are reported, why are indigenous people so often portrayed in a negative light? Why do the crimes so often go unsolved? What has the FBI done to help with this epidemic? How do we deal with it all?
