Dine' Seraphine Warren Walked to Washington from the Navajo Nation -- Law Enforcement and Government Agencies Failed Family


Censored News


Seraphine Warren arrives in Washington DC in time for Indigenous Peoples Day, after having walked all the way from Sweetwater, Arizona, on the Navajo Nation, a trek of over 2,500 miles. She set out to raise awareness about the failures of government agencies and law enforcement in handling the MMIW, Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, terror on the reservations. This terror struck Seraphine Warren's family when her beloved Auntie Ella Mae Begay went missing.

Warren began her prayer walk at her aunt’s home in Sweetwater, Arizona, at 2:30 am on June 15, 2022, a year to the day after her aunt went missing from the same location. Begay has not yet been found, and Law Enforcement agencies have failed to keep in contact with the family regarding their investigation.
