Members of Siouxland’s Native American Community and other supporters marched in unity Wednesday morning to remember native children who were removed from their families by the country’s child-welfare system.
Spokesman Frank Lamere began the 15th Annual March with a pipe ceremony at the War Eagle Monument:
OC….5 or 600. :27
Some of those marched through the cold morning in memory of specific children who died in foster care after being removed from their homes:
OC………that have been lost. ;24
Marchers walked along West 4th Street, stopping at Jackson Recovery Centers, the local senior center and over to the county courthouse for prayers before ending with a Memorial Dinner at the Sioux City Public Museum.
