This the empty redress project is a wonderful thing IF NOT for the fact that it is trying to draw attention to a HORRIBLE crime taking place in this country — i.e., the violence against Native Indian women as well as their disappearance (as in gone forever).

It is tragic.

What makes it worse that much of it is perpetrated by Native Indian men, their relatives and their kinfolk.

The Native Indian authorities are doing an atrocious job protecting their own females, young and old.

I have seen it first hand in my many trips to the Navajo Nation.

The Native Indians have issues. This, the violence against women, is one of them.

We need MORE than just this eye-catching project. But, it is a good start. Bravo and THANKS.
