Bernadette Smith scours the depths of the Red River in Manitoba for her missing sister and other women and children murdered and dumped in its murky waters. Duana Johnson comforts families of those who’ve vanished from reservations throughout the U.S. Northwest. Mary Kathryn Nagle battles for justice on behalf of the mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties, and nieces stolen, tortured, raped, and killed. These Native women represent the countless voices extinguished by the ongoing genocide confronted by the MMIWG2S movement. Who’s committing these atrocities, and why isn’t more being done to stop them?!? This special episode of the News Beat podcast delves into the mystery, horrors, and heartbreak defining the crisis, searching for answers to these and many other haunting questions centuries in the making. Adding to the visceral journalistic storytelling, South Carolina-by-way-of-New York Hip Hop sorceress LiKWUiD performs original verse to illuminate the epidemic, and mission to end it.
