Peace and Dignity Journeys is a prayer for new life for all people by strengthening the voice and identity of the Indigenous Peoples though the continued effort of building opportunities for sharing cultures, ceremonies and prayers.
All proceeds support intercontinental run that traverses the Western Hemisphere from Alaska to Argentina beginning May 1 2012.
Peace and Dignity Journeys are spiritual runs that embody the prophecy of the Eagle and Condor. This prophecy mandates that at this time all Indigenous Peoples in the Western Hemisphere shall be reunited in a spiritual way in order to heal our nations so we can begin to work towards a better future for our children and generations to come. Through the Journeys, participant runners and supporters work to accomplish this goal by helping each other reconnect to their respective spiritual practices and traditions; by helping each other relearn our role in the world as Indigenous Peoples; and by reminding each other of our responsibilities to Mother Earth, Father Sky, our communities, and ourselves.
