This Sunday, June 21st, we will begin the third installment of our journey to each sacred mountain that encompasses our home land. Here is a tentative schedule of where we'll be and what to expect as we arrive to each community.
We will cover over 450 miles on this walk, and will see first hand the impacts of uranium contamination, coal mining, oil and gas drilling, as well as the exploitation of water in our homelands. Every step we walk is a prayer for the healing of our land and our people. This is our path, our collective prayer in the hope that we as Diné people will act to restore Hozhó and protect our home.
To our young people, we are calling on you to come and walk for our land and way of life. NihíDiné'e, If we don't take the time to care for our land and people, no one else will. It's is up to us. This is our time! T'áá Hwó' Ají T'éego!
We need your support and guidance - If anyone can help organize places to stay along our route, community events, or can donate food, please contact us. We are calling out to our people in K'é. Keep us in your prayers.
