Today we have 22 miles to walk! We started at the gas station at Bodaway/Gap this morning and are heading to Coppermine on highway 20! 
Eggs, Potatoes, Cheese, Baking Powder, Flour, Cooking Oil, Salt, Fruit, Fresh Produce, ICE
We are calling out to our DINÉ WARRIORS to take a stand in protecting our homelands and carrying on our way of life. We are in a CRISIS. As we walk, we are seeing our beautiful homeland being turned into a toxic waste land that we will not be able to live on. What happens to the land happens to the people. In many communities our people are unable to drink the water, breath the air, and are plagued by illness. Things will only get worse if we DO NOT take action. Come walk in prayer as we journey to our sacred places and make the offerings our ancestors have always made to reaffirm our way of life. Our collective prayer is that our young people fulfill our ancestors' prayers by realizing the beauty in the land and rise to defend our home. It is up to us!
