Cherokee Nation is raising awareness about the crisis of Missing or Murdered Indigenous People.

In this country, there are too many cases of Murdered or Missing Indigenous People, including Cherokee Nation citizens.

We have expanded our ONE Fire Victim Services office. We have added more marshals and prosecutors. Cherokee Nation hired a full-time investigator to work exclusively on MMIP cases.

In 2016, some 5,712 reports of missing indigenous women and girls were filed, according to the National Crime Information Center.

However, the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (a program of the US Department of Justice) only logged 116 — or 2 percent — of those cases.

For tips or information on MMIP cases call 918-207-3800.
