Mother Earth Father Sky Concert, Dooda Desert Rock Camp

Longest Walk Southern Route comes to Dooda Desert Rock, Navajo Nation, in New Mexico

In concert, Gary Farmer and all star lineup
Greetings Dooda Desert Rock Supporters,
Please join us for two special events happening April 5, 6 & 7, 2008, at the Dooda Desert Rock campsite. On April 6th, DDR will welcome the Longest Walk II to New Mexico. We are honored to be a part of this tradition, as we support our brothers and sisters who have committed themselves to a cross-country walk for environmental protection and Native American rights. DDR will meet the Longest Walk II participants at the Arizona-New Mexico state line, and escort them through New Mexico.
On April 6th, DDR will continue to escort the Longest Walk II to the DDR camp at Chaco Rio, New Mexico. We will have an opportunity to share the story and mission of DDR while the Longest Walk II rests at our camp. DDR will host the “MOTHER EARTH & FATHER SKY Music Festival 2008” to celebrate the end of the New Mexico State Legislative Session and entertain the Longest Walk II walkers as they continue to rest at our camp. We are especially excited to welcome Gary Farmer and his band and all other musicians to this event.
The Longest Walk II will resume their journey on April 7th. DDR will walk with them to the proposed Desert rock power plant site, and on to the New Mexico - Oklahoma border. Then DDR will rejoin the walkers in July in Washington, D.C.
We hope you will join us in this historic celebration.

Elouise Brown
President, Dooda Desert Rock
