Ep. 170 Yakama MMIW: The Missing

The Pacific Northwest is known for a wide variety of true crime. Heck, we have an entire show dedicated to it. Sadly, one demographic is especially targeted in the areas surrounding British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon; Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Today and over my next upcoming episodes, I’ll be sharing the stories of the MMIW from the Yakama Nation of Washington. 

Episode Host: Alisha Holland
