Nonprofit holds vigil in DTLA to remember Native American children forced into boarding schools

Now a federal investigation has been launched into past abuses.

One group, United American Indian Involvement, is making sure people don't forget.

UAII recently remembered the tens of thousands of children forced into U.S. boarding schools over generations during a vigil across from L.A. City Hall.
