Could there be a memorial section on this page for those MMIWG2S who are gone?
Jamie Kellicut
04:49:00
Leaning into my vulnerability, the website does not feel very Indigenous led. Do we have indigenous members who are good with websites etc that can help with that?
Renee Gralewicz (she/her)
04:49:04
I like that idea Rick - and perhaps have a space for people to ADD to the list, a contact person to get a new name added or update the individual issue
Renee Gralewicz (she/her)
04:50:03
Excellent - MMIWG2SR Events list
Rick Kitchen
04:51:17
Please address Jamie’s question about the webpage
Kristin Welch
04:52:02
We do have many talented indigenous youth who are great with media..thoughts Jamie?
Rick Kitchen
04:53:06
And, Rene Ann hosted a few ‘No More MMIW- MMIWg2S Great Lakes” zooms
Jamie Kellicut
04:54:05
Great idea Kristin! Someone may have suggested this idea...perhaps a call for our youth to design imagery for the website. We NEED our families spirits included on the website. I personally think we need a completely separate website that stands alone from the DOJ site. I am offering that to the universe. :)
Co-Chair, Skye Alloway (she, her, hers)
04:54:13
The website is still pretty bare bones at the moment and still needs to comply with the state guidelines, but yes we are working towards a more indigenous feel to the website. Some of these things mentioned will help. We will have more updates on that a little further on in the presentation. Migwetth!
Rick Kitchen
04:56:00
