Longest Walk 2 2008

PROTECT SACRED SITES

In 2008, 30 years after the Longest Walk, there was a lot of issues regarding Native sacred sites around the country. Because of that, a 2nd Longest Walk was planned, and on Feb 11th 2008 a sunrise ceremony was held on Alcatraz, and the walkers left Sacramento, Ca. The walk had 2 routes; the original route, which was the Northern route, and the Southern route. Both routes made their way to Washington D.C., and on July 11th, the Walk was over.
