Short Abstract:


Abstract: For generations, American Indian, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian peoples have faced an ongoing crisis of violence, human trafficking, and an epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People (also known as MMIP). To bolster prevention efforts to mitigate the MMIP epidemic, the Administration for Native Americans (ANA), a program office within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), collaborated with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary’s Interdepartmental Council on Native American Affairs (ICNAA) to develop a podcast series to raise awareness, provide prevention resources and educate listeners on MMIP. This 10-part podcast series includes interviews with a variety of speakers, from tribal leadership to federal partners, advocates, members of grassroots organizations and native athletes that have all joined together to raise awareness of the MMIP epidemic. This series identifies ways we can focus on prevention and the continued work of Keeping Us Whole.
