The Longest Walk 5.2 rallied in White Clay, Nebraska today, April 8, 2017. Local horse riders joined walkers for the evening ceremony at Pine Ridge Billy Mills Hall for a 7 p.m.
“The Longest Walk 5.2 is a prayer walk and run from San Francisco to Washington D.C. supporting indigenous communities in seeking spiritual and cultural solutions to drug, alcohol abuse, and domestic violence,” said Bobby Wallace, National Walk Chief.
In White Clay, four businesses profited from the sale of 3.5 million cans of beer within the past year, fueling an epidemic of alcohol abuse in Native communities.
“We hope to help shed light on the predatory alcohol vendors in White Clay and honor the community’s ongoing, decades-long battle against these businesses,” Wallace said.
