Who are the ‘Lost Children?’

Each year, in the days before Thanksgiving, hundreds of mourners and protestors gather for the Memorial March to Honor Lost Children memorializing Native American children who have been taken from their families and communities and placed in the country's child-welfare system.

About the March to Honor Lost Children

The 17th annual March to Honor Lost Children will take place in downtown Sioux City, Iowa, on the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 27. The goal of the march is to raise awareness and ultimately reunite displaced Native American children with their home tribes and families.

Educational Workshop Conference

Attend a group of workshops, held the day before the March on the campus of Briar Cliff University, and you'll hear from Native American activists and examine the legal and social challenges facing today's Native American children in our country.

Continuing Education Units (CEU) are available, free of charge, for these workshops.
