Minnesota raises the alarm for missing native women

– As the snow fell, a half-dozen people in a downtown couple collected Sunday here in fluorescent, armed armies with missing American American wings.

There were moments marching for those who were lost in four days, but Taysha asked Martineau to do more.

"I do not want to sit there and talk about it [the problem] … I do not want to go to these marches more if I'm out there, boots on the ground, do something about it, "said Martineau, a resident of Fond Du Lac Indian Reservation.

The Legislation is considering a task force to address the epidemic of missing missing mothers of indigenous women after the Urban Urban Health Institute ranked ninth Minnesota in the nation in such cases. The result was part of a study that emphasized the poor data collection by government agencies regarding the issue. As legal examines how to track the problem better, Martineau and several dozen private citizens in the Duluth area began in December last month to try and find missing people and keep their cases on the public eye.

They collect every Sunday to walk to the Dangerous Ports, handle and question people at bus stops, bars and hubs for homeless people. Named after the word Ojibwe for Lake Superior, the group wants to establish a presence in the community and provide a sign that people who know about some of the people who want to live may even know if they are They promptly talk to the police.

The institution's report noted that the 506 cases nationally identified in the report were likely to be due to inadequate data held by cities. The problem attracted national attention in 2017 following the murder of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, who was eight months pregnant when a neighbor in Fargo was killed who took her baby. The President of President Heidi Heitkamp, ​​North Dakota Democracy, introduced the Savanna Act to improve data on missing and killed native people.

"Why is not Minnesota doing this?" Mary Kunesh-Podein, D-New Brighton, remembered thinking at the time. "And I reminded myself that I was a state legislator and I can do this."

The murder is the third largest cause of death for Indian indigenous and indigenous Alaskan women. Last year, Kunesh-Podein introduced legislation to start the task of trying to ask for Indian women and their model, noting that there was no state or national system to track the data, but the action did not happen.

After the last year's hearing, "The Republicans and Democrats were horrible," said Kunesh-Podein, daughter of the tribal member of Standing Rock Sioux. "People said," How is this happening? Why is this happening? How much is happening? & # 39; "

Last month, the Legislation ran on the issue after re-introduction of a bill, and Kunesh-Podein is optimistic because of his chances. Some barristers announced a packed listening room in the Capitol, including Mysti Babineau, a member of Red Lake Nation, who talked about being raped and kidnapped.

Meanwhile, the Gitchigumi Scouts believe that there is a place for private citizens to take the matter. They are receiving guidance from the North Dakota Sahnish Scams, a group of citizens based on Fargo who was actively searching for and missing people across the Higher Level. Founder Lissa Yellowbird-Chase visited Duluth this week to offer training.

"You have to go out and start the jail itself – no one else is doing this for you," she said. "I am not saying that it is responsible for law enforcement, it is a community issue."

At a talk circle on addiction in the Fond du Lac tribal building on Sunday evening, John Diver acknowledged that people are more likely to suffer problems of abusive substances. One of the women gathered was a lazy cousin going missing; another woman began to talk about how she was almost missing – she met a man – but you were reluctant to say more.

"Everything begins to focus on the ones, the homeless, the prey," said Diver, who sometimes scouts their missions and as a result of the collection when Indian tactics eat and that they go around sage

Recently, the Gitchigumi Scouts were trying to cope with the case of Sheila St. Clair, Duluth's 48-year-old residing of the city last in the city in 2015 and did not continue on his quoted plans to visit the White Indian World Rescue.

A spokesman for the Duluth Policing Department said that all of the leading intake officers continue, but "those times will be more and more time-consuming". The department stated that Naomh Clair is the indigenous missing women missing in their database.

The Advocates also recognize the importance of asking men, and the wing wings scouts not only the photos of St. Clair but also on Michial David Annamitta Jr., who were missing in 2013.

Those outside the Indian community took an interest in the cause, including Carol Thicke, who said, "You can not just be settled down and you do not care about this."

With participation fighting during Sunday's cold weather, one volunteer with some scout members continued to be a hot car, ready for relief from the elements. Resident residents Toni Branley and Jason Goward walked to a transit station, giving visitors and asking them questions. A woman in the downtown transit station, Christine Ross, said St Clair knew that she was in society and that she had seen a boy at the casino shortly before she was missing.

"I think it's a really good thing," Ross said of the scouts efforts, "because many people sometimes forget things."

The Mission of the Gospel of the Union was a regular stop for the scouts, which provides meals for the people who are required; St Clair came to come here.

"It's a big problem," said Susan Jordahl-Bubacz, executive director of the mission. "It's a very awful thing that's happening."

Martineau considers it important to keep trying to keep, showing. People do not accept bad time, she noticed, and she should not.

"There are three daughters of mine … My wounds every day and asked me if one one" she said. "Which one is being attacked? Who could go missing?"
