NEW TOWN, N.D. - Walking for awareness, walking for Olivia Lone Bear, walking for all missing and murdered indigenous women across the country.

"I do have two daughters and I know how easy it is for somebody to just come and nab them up," said Mary Baker, New Town.

Hundreds crossed Four Bears bridge days after Olivia's body had been found in Lake Sakakawea.

"There is still a pending investigation for Olivia, so we're not out of the water just yet," said Matthew Lone Bear, Olivia's brother.

The MHA Nation is rallying together in hopes that what happened to Olivia doesn't happen to anyone else.

"If this ever happened to my girls, I don't know what I'd do. It's just crazy, it could happen to anyone. It's a scary thought, it's a really scary thought," said Sam Irwin, New Town.

Showing strength in numbers for a better future for indigenous women.
