The overall PDJ Northern (Eagle) prayer route originates in Alaska. As the prayer route and runners move southward they split off to reach more native communities, and are joined by organized "tributary" routes and runners from all directions.
Local spirtual/prayer runs, educational/fundraisers in involved communities will be organized to build relationships and heal before and after the 2016 Peace and Dignity Journeys. With each passing, Peace & Dignity Journeys makes an open invitation to runners from across the continent. Youth, elders, men, and women are all invited to participate as runners. Both native and non-native people who are committed to the preservation of Native American culture are encouraged to participate. Runners may commit to run for as little as one day or the entire duration of the journey. Runners represent their nations and communities and are expected to carry themselves in a proper manner. Since the run is a sacred ceremony, runners must abstain from drugs, alcohol, and sexual activity while on the journey. If you are interested in participating as a runner, contact the appropriate regional coordinator as soon as possible.
