The Shoshone Paiute led walk and run to Thatcher Pass is in its third day today. The support van broke down and support arrived with the needed vehicle parts. Runners and walkers continued on this journey in the snowfall, 273 miles from Yomba Shoshone to Thatcher Pass, protecting sacred land and water from a planned massive open-pit lithium mine by Canadian company Lithium Nevada.
