Red Sky Nation's 2nd Annual
Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives (MMIR) Pow Wow
The Red Sky Nation pow wow committee consists of two families who have been personally affected by the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives (also popularly known as Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women/MMIW/MMIR). The family of the late Terri McCauley wanted to bring Native nations and allies together in one space to offer healing, education, prevention, resources, and awareness regarding this public health crisis. Thus, the first #MMIR pow wow was created for the Siouxland area.

Our goal this year is to raise 50k to have a truly successful pow wow. This will include livestreaming, dance competition cash payouts, equipment fees, and logistics. The American Indian Council is also partnering to be able to provide jobs and work experience for the pow wow which include security and clean-up/sanitation crews. We also want to provide space to small businesses, artists, and organizations near and far at the pow wow. We are currently looking for sponsors to help make this a good experience for all who come to dance, learn, and heal with us.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, you can access our sponsorship letter here.
