Mita Maske Ti Ki (My Sister Friend's House)
Sarah Johnson, an advocate at Mita Maske Ti Ki (My Sister Friend's House), a women's shelter in Sioux Falls, joined Dakota Midday as part of SDPB's series examining sex trafficking in South Dakota. Mita Maske Ti Ki is a safe zone that offers transitional housing for women of all ages, races and backgrounds. Johnson explained how their grassroots effort to empower women with education, job skills, health care and a safe place to achieve their goals of freedom is a daily challenge. 85-percent of the women finding shelter at Mita Maske Ti Ki are Native American. The shelter offers a culturally sensitive option for those women.
