This morning at 4:15 am we started our 30th Annual Mt. Graham Sacred Run leaving San Carlos and now entering Bylas, Arizona. Thirty years ago a vision was given showing us breaking down barriers and making our way home. Our ancestors once roamed free on the mountain being able to pray and be Apache. The government exiled our people and placed us as prisoners of war which still exist today. This run is showing that enough is enough. We will continue to exist and continue to fight for our religion and way life. We are going home!

Looking through our censored files, it is good to remember those who had the courage to rise above the borders and restraints.

Thanks to all who shared their stories, including Kahentinetha Horn who shares her trip to Cuba at age 19, and some time with Fidel Castro. 

Thank you to Robert Free, who was at Alcatraz, Wounded Knee and the Trail of Broken Treaties, and went on to work with President Hugo Chavez to bring heating oil to Native Americans. Robert was part of a Native trade and culture exchange in Libya.
