Hundreds attend memorial march in Farmington



Hundreds took part in a march in Farmington, New Mexico, to honor victims of racial violence.

Leaders of the Navajo Nation organized the march after two race-related incidents in Farmington. A Navajo man was fatally shot by a police officer and a Navajo man was beaten by three white males.

Representatives of the Navajo Nation, the Hopi Tribe, the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe and other tribes attended. They said racism against Native Americans exists in border towns across the nation.

Navajo leaders plan to hold another march in Farmington.
