'No more stolen sisters': Hundreds assemble, march for Missing Murdered Indigenous Women


May 6—BEMIDJI — The beating of hand drums rang out in the distance, first faintly but soon louder and louder. Then, in the blink of an eye, a sea of red flooded the path along Paul Bunyan Drive.

Several hundred people walked in solidarity on Thursday to raise awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Many held signs bearing messages like "Bring her home" and "No more stolen sisters," while others painted red handprints on their faces to display the cause's symbol.

Marching from the Sanford Center, attendees sang and visited with one another as they made their way to Paul Bunyan Park for a gathering hosted by activist group MMIW 218.
