AUDIO: Indian Affairs Secretary on Montana Talks
In case you missed it, earlier this week we had an exclusive interview with Tara Sweeney, Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs at President Trump's Interior Department.
We talked about the challenges facing Indian Country here in Montana, and across the country- especially the challenge of missing and murdered indigenous women. What is causing all of these women to go missing? What is being done to try and stop it and to speed up work on missing persons cases?
Hear about that and more as Tara Sweeney joined us on our statewide radio talk show- Montana Talks- earlier this week. Click below for full audio:
Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) has been one of the top stories here in Montana over the past year. It's a concern shared by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle: why are so many women in our Native American reservation communities getting murdered or going missing? And what can be done to stop it?
It's not just Montana lawmakers focusing on the issue. The Trump Administration is also doubling down at the national level.
Coming up on Monday's Montana Talks statewide radio talk show with Aaron Flint- we'll be joined by Tara Sweeney, Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs. Sweeney is leading the Department of Interior's "Reclaiming Our Native Communities" effort.
