Tribal leaders want action after death of Savanna Greywind

AP - Tribal leaders in North Dakota are calling for action after the disappearance and death of Savanna Greywind.

The United Tribes of North Dakota plan to send a letter to North Dakota's congressional delegation. The letter seeks justice for the family of Greywind and the families of missing and murdered Native American women.

The Bismarck Tribune reports the letter was approved during the recent Tribal Leaders Summit in Bismarck. Among the recommendations is a task force to reopen cold cases of missing and murdered Native American women.

Greywind was eight months pregnant when her family last saw her alive on Aug. 19. Greywind's newborn girl was found alive in the apartment of two people charged in the case. Greywind's body was found in the Red River.
