On February 11, 2008, Longest Walk 2 participants will embark on a five-month journey taking two routes 8,000 miles across Turtle Island to Washington, D.C. arriving on July 11, 2008. In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the historic Longest Walk of 1978 that resulted in historic changes for Native America, hundreds of communities are participating in the Longest Walk of 2008 to raise awareness about issues impacting our world environment, to protect Sacred Sites and to clean up Mother Earth. Longest Walk 2 is part of many communities ongoing commitment to protect sacred sites, cultural preservation, and to create awareness about the environment. Both routes will visit Sacred Sites across the Nation and promote educational awareness for Sacred Sites protection and preservation. The Longest Walk 2 invites veteran walkers that participated in the 1978 Longest Walk and we reach out the new generations of the future to join us. Our message is: ALL LIFE IS SACRED.
