Reward Fund to Find Missing, Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Two Spirit People
On January 10, 2022, the Duluth City Council unanimously approved the resolution for City officials to partner with Mending the Sacred Hoop and the Native Lives Matter Coalition for a reward fund for information regarding Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirit people in the Twin Ports: Gaagige-Mikwendaagoziwag “You Will Always Be Remembered.” Funds will be used to encourage those with information on the missing to report.
In August of 2015, Sheila St Clair went missing from Duluth, MN. Last seen in the 100 block of West 3rd Street, she is still being sought by her family, friends, and relatives. This is an open case with the Duluth Police Department. The investigation continues, but over 6 years later, Sheila St Clair has not been found.
The Gaagige-Mikwendaagoziwag Fund was conceived in her honor, and to assist in bringing Sheila and others home. Anyone with information on Sheila St. Clair should contact the Duluth Police Department’s Violent Crime Unit: 218-730-5050.
