TV Show About Alaska Highlights One Of The State's Worst Problems: Missing & Killed Native Women 

The rampant killing and abuse of Alaskan Native women is such an old story – with no apparent resolution – that it almost seems numbingly mundane.

Numerous politicians and governors have said they're going to fix it. But it has not been fixed. There have been many stories about the issue -- culminating in a recent Pulitzer Prize winning tale, "Lawless" by Pro Publica and the Anchorage Daily News.

Now there's a TV show on ABC named "Alaska Daily" that tackles the problem as a fictional story about a reporter working at an Anchorage newspaper who is assigned to try to find out what happened to a young Native girl who died out on the tundra years ago. Who killed her? And why are there so many indigenous missing and dead women in Alaska anyway?

The show debuted on Thursday, October 6th at 9 pm. It was probably the most accurate look at Anchorage that you'll see on a national entertainment show. Although the scenes are apparently grafted between British Columbia and Anchorage, the city looks very real. And the issue of dead and missing Native women is front and center in the story. 

The problem of missing Native women is not limited to Alaska. It's a national problem, all over America.
