Michael Lane said, "This woman Saundi is amazing on the Longest Walk: We Shall Continue 2019. At 60 years she walks and runs 5 miles heading towards St Louis, Missouri. Thank you and Megwich!"

Photos by Western Shoshone Long Walker Carl Bad Bear Sampson on the Longest Walk.

Our friend Sharon Heta, Maori from New Zealand, top photo, is among three grandmothers now walking from Cahokia Mounds to Indiana and Illinois. Sharon Heta and her husband Michael Lane and their daughters walked on the Longest Walk northern route in 2008. In the past few weeks, there were nearby tornadoes in Kansas, but the walkers kept on walking. Michael Lane said walkers were welcomed by the Prairie Band Potawatamie Nation and met with Council. Walkers appreciated the support there, and in Kansas City and St. Louis areas. Thank you Bad Bear for sharing your photos, and walking and running, one more time across this land they call America.
