SACATON, AZ -- The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs took part in a discussion with members of the Trump Administration, this week, looking at public safety issues confronting Indian Country. Tribal officials from around the country met with representatives from the Interior Department to work on developing a comprehensive approach to address cold cases, violent crimes and missing and murdered native Americans. 


The "Reclaiming our Native Communities" round table discussion took place Tuesday in Arizona, and included Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Chairman Raymond Tsumpti, as well as Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ). Sen. McSally says it's an important issue because, "Native American communities, particularly indigenous women, face much higher rates of violence versus the national average. Alarmingly, law enforcement officials in Indian Country often lack access to the data and resources necessary to prosecute and prevent these crimes. We must do more to ensure public safety in our Native communities."
