ABOUT:
Every four years since 1992, Peace and Dignity Journeys runners traverse the Western Hemisphere by foot, carrying stories, songs and prayers, re-uniting Indigenous communities step by step. Departing simultaneously from Chickaloon, Alaska and Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, the journey culminates 7 months later with a final ceremony in Panama.

The run is a prayer in motion, a pilgrimage for the Earth, calling back ancestral memories of who we are. The 2016 journey is dedicated to seeds: the sacred medicines and foods that sustain cultures and communities—under threat now more than ever due to genetic modification, corporate ownership, and climate change.

"Food sovereignty is an affirmation of who we are as indigenous peoples and a way, one of the most surefooted ways, to restore our relationship with the world around us."
—Winona LaDuke, Anishinaabe

"Through this run, we help ensure, not only the survival, but the perseverance and the growth of our future generations, in a traditional way."
—Jose Malvido, Yoeme, Tohono O'Odham / North America Peace & Dignity Journeys coordinator
