Missing or Murdered Indigenous Persons
The Department of Justice is committed to addressing the persistent violence endured by Native American families and communities across the country, including by working with Tribal nations to address the important issues of missing or murdered indigenous persons. The Department views this work as a priority for its law enforcement components. It also recognizes the broader public safety and public health concerns that underlie many of these cases and require solutions from across the Department's components.
The Department of Justice has prioritized working to address the causes of violence against Native American individuals and communities and to bring justice to victims and their families.
The Department is committed to its ongoing work pursuant to Savanna’s Act to improve the federal response to missing or murdered indigenous persons (MMIP).
