The Union of BC Indian Chiefs and The Great Plains Tribal Chairmen’s Association issued separate press releases this week slamming the lack of representation of Native and Indigenous women on the Montana-set David E. Kelley drama. They are calling on ABC to incorporate the issue of Montana's missing and murdered Native and Indigenous women into the storyline of the show, which centers on investigators looking into a high incidence of women disappearing from a highway in the state. “Making the abduction and trafficking of women for primetime entertainment is bad enough. Erasing the real life tragedy of the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) crisis is unconscionable," GPTCA executive director A. Gay Kingman said in a statement. "We live with the consequences of this loss and trauma on a daily basis, but ABC won’t even acknowledge it, even after they’ve been given an opportunity to do so."
