FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Hundreds of mourners gathered in Fargo Thursday for the funeral of 22-year-old Savanna Greywind, many of them wearing red shirts.

The funeral included Native American songs and tributes from Spirit Lake Tribal Chairwoman Myra Pearson and Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney.

The red shirts are meant to honor Greywind and other indigenous women killed or missing.

A private burial ceremony was planned later Thursday.

Greywind's body was found Aug. 27, three days after authorities recovered a newborn baby believed to be hers. Two of Greywind's neighbors are charged with her murder and kidnapping.
