Kate: to bring awareness to issues facing native americans, the northeast oklahoma american indian movement put together a day of remembrance for lives lost and forgotten.

The goal is to raise awareness of missing and murdered indigenous people who are statistically under-reported.

At the end of 20-17, the fbi's national crime information center database had 633 open missing person cases for native american women.

Those numbers are considered an undercount, given reporting is largely voluntary and some tribes only gained full access to the database under a justice department program launched in 20-15.

"noone cared enough to count us until now, there are some efforts starting throuhhout the country and all the different states are kind of putting together task forces but to date nobodies got a clear number and honestly how far would you go back because our people have been murdered and missing since colonization started" the event also brought awareness to child abuse, domestic violence and human trafficking of native americans.
