Peace and Dignity Journeys San Diego is holding a fundraiser and dinner on Saturday, November 21 530-830pm at the World Beat Center in Balboa Park. Dinner will be provided and the program will include ceremony, testimonies from Peace and Dignity Journeys runners and representatives from local Native communities, and a video. We are raffling a professionally produced giclee print of Hector Villegas' original piece "Red Road." All donations will go to support the 2016 Peace and Dignity Journeys Run for the Seeds.

Peace and Dignity Journeys was started in 1992 to continue in the spirit of the traditions of our ancestors. Every four years Indigenous communities all over North, Central and South America witness and partake in the tradition of receiving runners with ceremonies unique to their community, sharing stories, song, dance, and the wisdom that comes from community elders and ceremony. Peace and Dignity Journeys runners start simultaneously from both ends of the continent in Chickaloon, Alaska and Tierra del Fuego, Argentina traversing the entire continent by foot from community to community and joining together for a final gathering in Central America.
