We have so much to share with community this year! The cultural healing that MMIWP FAMILIES strives to bring together for our collective healing is what carries each of and lightens our bodies, minds, and spirits as we gather to share our stories and lift one another up. This year we will be gathering at Seattle’s historical grounds at Daybreak Star Cultural Center’s Pow-Wow Grounds.

Please join grassroots organization MMIWP FAMILIES in bringing continued awareness to the epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women and people and the perpetuation of colonial, gender-based violence across the United States and Canada. We wish to respectfully invite the families of MMIWP to the center, so as to highlight and uplift the stories of you and your loved ones.

Wear Red in Honor of MMIWP. The color red was chosen because it represents the lifeblood and connection between all people, and carries significance for many of our Alaskan Indian, Native American and Canada’s First Nations as red is the only color spirits can see. The red dresses aid in calling the spirits of missing and murdered women and girls back to their loved ones.
Please feel free to wear your traditional regalia. Bring your drums, rattles, songs & prayers. If you are an impacted family bring your missing loved ones banner and posters.

If you are a cultural dance group and would like to bring your medicine and prayer to this year’s event please reach out to Roxanne White at

We will have MMIWP FAMILIES T-shirts available again this year for cost.

This is a clean and sober event. No violence or weapons. The space is safe and sacred. Please bring loving energy and vibes!

This event happens every year by way of a heartfelt community effort. We want to thank Daybreak Star, Muckleshoot Tribe, 350 Seattle, United Urban Indian Education, Puyallup Water Warriors, Mazaska Talks, and SUNN.
