Native American Homelessness Task Force says to restore trust
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —It has been a little more than a year since the bodies of two homeless Native Americans were found in an Albuquerque lot, and though the mayor created a task force to find ways to improve the quality of life for the Native American population, something is getting in the way of that.
When three teens were arrested and charged with the beating deaths, the crime shocked New Mexico.
Shortly after, Mayor Richard Berry met with Native American leaders and organized the task force, which focused on homelessness within the Native American population. The task force released its recommendations, but it said trust must be restored.
