Every four years, since 1992, Peace and Dignity Journey participants begin their voyage across the continent.

Runners start simultaneously from both ends of the continent in Chickaloon, Alaska and Tierra del Fuego, Argentina traversing the Western Hemisphere by foot, from community to community and, joining together for a final gathering in Guatemala. The 2012 run is dedicated to water, reminding those who have forgotten that water is an important and shared resource for all.

Since its inception people have informally documented small sections of the journeys with home equipment, and some have produced short documentations of a specific region.  This year, we would like to document the journey in its entirety, from Alaska to Guatemala, focusing on the stories and songs of the native communities traversed.

Although many people may not be able to run from Alaska to Guatemala, we believe in the importance of documenting and sharing the messages of the elders with everyone.  Traditional elders have an important message to share with us about how we can take care of the environment and carry peace and dignity within ourselves.  We know that many people believe in this cause and will help make this a possibility.  With your contribution we will be able to purchase the necessary technology to record these critical messages.

The Peace and Dignity Journeys is a grass roots organization that is fully sponsored by the communities that host the runners.   We do not receive sponsorship from corporations. Our efforts are fully funded and supported by people like you.  Everyone can contribute to making this journey possible. This run only exists with your generous contributions.

Please help us spread the word.  Invite your friends and family! Tell them about this incredible run that connects indigenous people from North America to South America by bringing to life an ancient prophecy of peace and the importance of dignity for all.   Ask them to support as we invite everyone to learn about the Peace and Dignity Journeys of 2012.  Please forward widely by email, tweet or, facebook.
