Murdered And Missing Native American Women: Unsolved, Unreported and Ignored. The Democratic Perspective hosts welcome Brianna Lamb of the University of Montana. A member of the Nez Perce nation from Missoula, she is a domestic abuse survivor and a major activist on this issue. Indeed, Lamb was invited to attend the State of the Union address by Senator John Tester who has become a strong ally. Lamb addresses the problems with jurisdiction on reservations and the lack of media attention which have led to the disappearance of so many women. According to Lamb, these women “disappear in life, in the media and in the data,” adding that “when you don’t have hard data, it’s hard to get legislation.”
