Ashley’s disappearance is one small chapter in the unsettling story of missing and murdered Native American women and girls.

WASHINGTON – The National Mall is studded with monuments to iconic people and events, from presidents to wars to civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. Later this month, finalists will be announced for a memorial to a group with less name recognition: Native American veterans.
