VIDEO Long Walk 3 Northern Route Simnasho-Warm Springs Oregon
(Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011) Long walkers on the northern route are still trekking through the snow. Lisa Peake, Ojibwe/Pomo, said Wed night, "It snowed all day. We have 25 more miles to bring the walk into Pendleton, heading Walla Walla way and the salmon talks." On Wednesday, the community of Pendleton, Oregon, joined for a morning walk. On Thursday, Navajo coordinator Chris Francisco said the walkers and runners appreciate the warm welcome by their current stay host, the Umatilla Indian Nation. The next base camp is Lapwai, Idaho, next week.
