Missing, murdered indigenous women given voice at Women’s March

Thousands upon thousands of people marched through the streets of downtown Seattle on Jan. 20, part of the millions that took part in Women’s March 2.0 all across the country that day. Here at home, local missing and murdered indigenous women were the focus including the Puyallup Tribe’s own Jacqueline Salyers who was among the women honored at the march. Her mom, Lisa Earl, spoke to the crowd:

“On behalf of my daughter Jacqueline Salyers, her children, and all the missing and murdered indigenous women, my heart feels good to see you all here. I just want to say that I am so proud to see you all here, that we are here to support, educate and empower our women in our communities. We must protect the givers of life – our sacred women. Much love to you all.”
