The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has reported that Indians have the highest per capita homicide rates among the nation's
racial groups. Many Indian people have disappeared without a trace. These cases grow cold in the absence of adequate
investigative resources in Indian country. In response to the growing issue, and to aid in the quest to reunite families,
Lamar Associates launched the Missing from the Circle project. Lamar Associates believes that Indian people will seek
out to find and try to reclaim their missing, or find closure about them, from the same instincts that guided our struggle
for the repatriation of human remains from museums and other agencies.
Knowing we are a people with beliefs about the spiritual journeys of our departed and our pride in properly caring
for our people when they've gone on, Lamar Associates opens the door affording Indian Country an opportunity to
aid in reuiniting loved ones with their missing family members.
