NmTC awarded events contract for MMIWG inquiry
Naut’sa mawt Tribal Council has been awarded a $2.6 million contract by Canada to handle the logistics for the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
The tribal council’s events department will use the majority of that money to plan and facilitate hearings as well as paying out expenses and travel costs for attending family members.
Naut’sa mawt CAO Gary Reith said Allison Gavin, director of marketing services, has been busy heading the project.
“It’s obviously a very heavy subject matter, and Allison has been doing an amazing job,” he said.
The inquiry has nine hearings scheduled for this fall and is expected to file its final report on the matter by Dec. 31, 2018.
