As the family of Skye, we have faced various obstacles since losing her. One challenge we have experienced is the real lack of resources for families of Indigenous homicide victims.
We have had to learn as we go. We wish to honor Skye by helping others who may find themselves desperately searching for guidance.
No family should have to investigate their own loved one's murder and yet we know that we are not the only family who has had to do this, and sadly we won't be the last.
We will be developing a web based resource tool in hopes of making it a little easier for other families who find themselves in our shoes.
There is no doubt that we've acquired PTSD from having to work on our beautiful Skye's case ourselves but we also know that we possess Post Traumatic STRENGTH.

Today is one year since we lost our Skye. Today is also the day that we have launched the web based resource tool previously mentioned. It is called the Skye Woman Project: A Resource for Native Homicide Victim's Families. For more info please visit the link below.

Because it is such a challenge in getting media attention, we have decided to try something different in attempt to increase exposure of Skye's story nationwide.
On this date we launched our Sticker initiative. We purchased stickers that display Skye's graphic, her personal webpage address and the Skye Woman Project address.
With the help of volunteers consisting of family and friends, these stickers are being placed in random public places throughout multiple states.
We will be monitoring the numbers of visits to both webpages over the next several months to see if this is an effective means of awareness.
We have also requested that people send us pictures of Skye's stickers along with their as they are spotted across Oklahoma and nationwide. We are collecting the pictures to gage how far they are shared.

In light of the fact that we have continued to hit obstacles, with full support from the family, as Skye's mother, I have decided to take another step. I am officially on my way to becoming a licensed Private Investigator in hopes of improving my effectiveness in advocating for my daughter.
While I don't intend on investigating other cases - because my priority lies with Skye right now, I do wish to assist other families to the extent that I am able to.
I also intend on increasing this into something bigger in the future.
