We are an Alaska Native and womxn-led non-profit stewarding a database for missing and murdered Indigenous womxn, girls and relatives in Alaska.

The Alaska MMIWG2S data gaps are prevalent and unacceptable. Accurate data and reporting are an essential part to bringing justice for our community. Together we are reclaiming and housing the MMIWG2S data to protect and care for our community.

If you are a loved one of a missing or murdered relative and are seeking justice, submit the name of your loved one to the MMIWG2S database. Know that this data and information gathered is housed with care, love and respect.

Check out some of the recent work of DIJ. We continue to work towards justice in a safe and healthy manner during the COVID19 pandemic.


“We have always known that violence against Native womxn was an issue, but people refuse to acknowledge it. We are showing that data is going to be important to bring change and that more research is urgently needed to protect our womxn and girls.”

Abigail Echo-Hawk, Director of Urban Indian Health Institute, DIJ Co-Founder

“It’s not just numbers. It’s not just statistics, but it’s our stories. It’s the stories of our life. It’s the story of our truths that we share as families, that we share as a collective.”
