More than 30 people showed up to a Murdered and Missing Indigenous Persons awareness walk Wednesday at Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation, with many attendees having been personally touched by the ongoing issue, as well as by police violence.
President Joe Biden declared Wednesday to be Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons Awareness Day.
The group walked along U.S. Highway 87 from Laredo to the Rocky Boy Indian's Reservation Powwow Grounds near Box Elder, with a law enforcement vehicle escorting the walkers, many holding signs with the red hand used to symbolize the crisis.
