The Medicine Wheel Ride, now in its 5th year, is a significant event that gathers attention from across the globe to highlight the critical issue of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP). Scheduled for Sunday, August 4, 2024, in Sturgis, this event is not just a motorcycle ride; it's a movement to raise awareness and drive action towards the MMIP crisis.

The Issue:

  • Every three days, a Native American woman goes missing.

  • Indigenous women face violence and trafficking at rates 4-10 times higher than the national average.

  • These women often "disappear" in physical reality, media coverage, and data collection.

MWR Mission: Your sponsorship can help us:

  • Assist families with search efforts and cover funeral expenses and legal fees.

  • Advocate for and support local community initiatives.

  • Benefit local organizations in the Black Hills area.


As a national, all-volunteer non-profit organization (EIN 85-1600219), Medicine Wheel ride is dedicated to raising awareness and supporting Indigenous families affected by this crisis. Join us in this noble cause and stand with those fighting for justice and change.
