Longest Walk 4 Return to Alcatraz photos by Western Shoshone Long Walker Carl 'Bad Bear' Sampson, thank you! Photos of Golden Gate before sunrise, ferry to Alcatraz Island and Pier 33 dock in San Francisco on Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013

Walkers on the five-month Longest Walk 4 Return to Alcatraz arrived on Alcatraz Island on Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013, returning home the sacred staffs. The walk upheld Indigenous Sovereignty and began in Washington DC on July 15, 2013. Walkers followed the route of the original Longest Walk in 1978, from DC and Pennsylvania through the Midwest in Missouri and Kansas, and finally through the Rockies and into the West. Thank you from Censored News, and our readers, for sharing your walk, your stories, and your photos with us, and making the effort and sacrifice to make a difference.
