Violence Towards Native American Women

In the novel There There (2018), Cheyenne and Arapaho author Tommy Orange tells the story of twelve Native American characters and their experiences leading up to and during the Oakland powwow, including Blue, who runs away from her abusive husband. This project will explore the violence that Native American women face, focusing on the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women (MMIW) and raising awareness for these underreported crimes.
