Murder in Big Horn highlights the epidemic of MMIW

On this edition of Your Call, we discuss Murder in Big Horn, a three-part docuseries on Showtime featuring stories of missing and murdered Indigenous women in Montana.

Over the past decade, dozens of Indigenous women and girls from the Crow and Northern Cheyenne Nations have been murdered or gone missing in Big Horn County. Native families and journalists unravel a violent crisis set in motion almost 200 years ago during colonization.

What will it take to end this epidemic?
