Advocates will be walking to remember the over 200 indigenous children's bodies found in a mass grave.

The bodies were found at the now closed Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia.

Children were forced from their families and as many as 4,000 died from disease, abuse, or neglect, according to Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Finding the mass grave impacted indigenous communities here in Fargo.

Indian residential schools were also established here in the US
