Peace and Dignity Journey

Author:

Participants in the Peace and Dignity Journey took the run to honor sacred sites to the Swinomish reservation in Washington state June 13. Peace and Dignity Journeys take place every four years; this year's event began May 1 in Eklutna, Alaska, and Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, and will culminate at the Kuna Nation in Panama City, Panama.

Participants run for six months through hundreds of indigenous communities, participating in their respective spiritual practices and traditions, fostering dialogue on the issue of peace and dignity for indigenous peoples, and modeling their responsibility to the environment, their communities and themselves.
