Longest Walk 4 to stop in Vallejo, California on Wednesday
VALLEJO, CALIFORNIA – As the “Longest Walk 4: Return to Alcatraz” makes its way to the end of a cross country walk at Alcatraz Island, it will stop at Sogorea Te, the American Indian sacred site located in Glen Cove, on Wednesday, December 18, at 1:00 pm, PST.
Sogorea Te was the site of a 109-day occupation in the spring of 2011, which was held for the preservation and protection of the ancestors & for the preservation of sacred land.
The Longest Walk 4: Return to Alcatraz was initiated by those on the original The Longest Walk in 1978. It began on July 15, 2013 in Washington D.C. and will arrive at Alcatraz on December 21, 2013. The purpose of this Walk has been to reaffirm the heart of traditional tribal sovereignty rooted in ceremony and land based spiritual relationships.
On Wednesday, the spiritual walkers of the Longest Walk 4 will be hosted by Kay Flavell of New Pacific Studio during their visit to Vallejo.
