Navajo Nation to hold two marches in border town


Navajo Nation leaders plan to hold two marches in Farmington, New Mexico, to highlight racism and discrimination issues in border towns.

The first march, on September 2, marks the strained relations between the tribe and Farmington. The second march, to be scheduled at a future date, will protest the fatal shooting of Navajo man by a Farmington police officer and the beating of a Navajo man by three white males in Farmington.

The tribe is conducting a study of racism in border towns.
