Join us for an enlightening session with Daisy Bluestar, Executive Director of Native Lore and a respected member of the Southern Ute tribe. Daisy has been a seminal member of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives Taskforce and played a key role in significant legislative efforts in Colorado, including the establishment of an Office of MMIR and a dedicated hotline to improve the crisis response system.

In this two-hour session, Daisy will share her own poignant story in the search for justice for her aunt, a cold case that remained unresolved for two decades. She will also lead an educational panel discussing the ongoing crisis and climate surrounding Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW), providing insights into both the personal impact and broader systemic issues.


Why MMIW Month is Important:

May is recognized as Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) Month, dedicated to raising awareness and combating the epidemic of violence against indigenous women and girls. Indigenous women face murder rates more than ten times the national average—a statistic that underscores the critical need for action and awareness.


This event offers a unique opportunity to hear firsthand from an influential advocate and leader who has both personal and professional experience with the MMIW crisis. You'll gain a deeper understanding of the challenges these communities face and learn how you, as healthcare providers, can contribute to making a difference.
