AT&T Center for Indigenous Politics & Policy
A newly released report from the Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI) aims to bring to light more than 500 stories of missing and slain indigenous women and girls in cities across the U.S. The previous lack of data contributes to a false perception that the issue does not impact American Indian and Alaska Native women living off of reservations. GW’s AT&T CIPP partnered with UIHI to host their research briefing event at GW.
The second Monday in October has traditionally been celebrated as Columbus Day, but a growing movement is recognizing it as Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
Congratulations to Ms. Wendy Helgemo, Director of the AT&T Center for Indigenous Politics and Policy, on receiving the Distinguished Alumni Award from St. Olaf College for her work as an advocate for Native Americans.
