News from Cathy Billie

ST. IGNATIUS — The program “Empowering Voices: Addressing the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Peoples Epidemic” will be at Mission Valley United Methodist Church, 70715 US-93, top of Post Creek Hill, on Wednesday, March 6.

The evening will begin with a potluck at 6 p.m.  Mr. Hitswithastick will begin his program at 7 p.m.  The presentation is free and open to the public. In this presentation, Buck Hitswithastick tackles the urgent issue of missing and murdered Indigenous peoples in Montana and beyond. By delving into the systemic roots of this crisis, including the legacy of colonialism and ongoing discrimination, we aim to raise awareness and promote change. 

Through dynamic discussions and visual aids, we will explore strategies for advocacy, such as policy reforms and community-driven initiatives. The presentation seeks to shed light on the alarming rates of missing and murdered Indigenous individuals, as well as the resilient efforts of 

Indigenous communities to combat this crisis. Attendees will also learn about the crucial role of ally-ship and community support in preventing and responding to cases of missing and murdered Indigenous people.

For more information, please call Cathy Billie at 406-203-2179.
