Photo set 2: Long Walk 2 at Ben and Cat Carnes home in southern Colorado in 2008. The powerful interviews on Earthcycles Long Talk radio with Ben Carnes led to a series of dramatic events.

During the Longest Walk 2 across America, Govinda of Earthcycles and I had the honor of hosting the five-month live Long Talk Radio. Broadcasting from the Earthcycles radio bus, with solar and a satellite, we shared stories from California to DC in 2008. In these photos are a few of the extraordinary Native American youth walkers who walked across America, and friends we met along the way. In memorial, we remember Willie Lonewolf and Tomas Reyes -- Brenda, Censored News
