“After watching Somebody’s Daughter many thoughts fevered my brain for hours,” commented Wes Studi, the only Native American actor ever to receive an Oscar. “
The search for a solution begins with first knowing a crisis exists,” Studi continued, and the purpose of Somebody’s Daughter is exactly that – to alert lawmakers and the public alike that the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women crisis exists and demands urgent action.
With the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana as Executive Producer, Somebody’s Daughter focuses on some of the higher-profile MMIW cases, some of which were raised during the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs MMIW/MMIP hearing in December 2018.
With historical points of reference, the victims’ and their families’ stories are told through the lens of the legal jurisdictional maze and socio-economic bondage that constricts Indian Country.
For the first time on film, tribal leaders reveal the devastating roles of drug cartels and gangs in the MMIW crisis. Somebody’s Daughter was directed by Rain.
Award-winning actress Georgina Lightning was consultant for the film, and Alex Robinson was the cinematographer.

“Somebody’s Daughter is both hauntingly beautiful and emotionally devastating and should be recognized as one of the most important documentaries made on not only MMIW, but also on Indian Country in the twenty-first century.” Native News Online.
Highgarden Entertainment and Alter-Native Media are pleased to announce a special screening at the Jean Cocteau Cinema of Somebody’s Daughter and Say Her Name on Friday, February 4, in honor of American Indian Day, celebrated by the New Mexico Legislature.*
These two documentaries by filmmaker RAIN tell the story of the ongoing Missing, Murdered, Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) crisis in the United States and Canada—and shed light on one of the most important human rights issues of our times.
