A reservation well known for Disenrollment and for keeping RIGHTFUL San Pasqual Descendents from their rightful place in the tribe, will be be the FIRST STOP for THE LONGEST WALK 5
The Longest Walk 5, an event created to call attention to drug-related issues that are plaguing Indian reservations throughout the country, will be making the first stop of its nationwide trek at the San Pasqual Reservation this coming Saturday. They will stop at the tribal offices.
The LW5 will begin its lengthy journey of 3,600 miles at La Jolla Shores on the morning of February 13 and will eventually conclude its course in Washington, D.C. on July 15. Along the way, Indian leaders will be gathering information and hosting forums to better discover ways to combat the unfortunate menace that drugs have become within the Native community.
Twenty participant runners plan to cover the entire distance while many others are expected to join in along the route for shorter intervals.
A driving force behind this endeavor has been Dennis Banks and the American Indian Movement. Banks and representatives of the AIM will be there to greet the participants as they arrive at the reservation sometime between 4 and 6 p.m. Anyone interested is encouraged to welcome these road warriors who have undertaken such a daunting challenge.
All those involved are fully committed to waging a relentless war on drugs and see this event as meaningful step in that direction.
