Under the Religious Freedom Act of 1978 we will be traveling our ancestral trade routes in prayer to honor our relatives who came before us. As Indigenous women we unite in sisterhood. We will realign with traditional and sacred spaces, and bring awareness to Indigenous issues. Through resilience and commitment, we intend to complete the 210 mile journey from Cottonwood Pass to Yosemite Valley in the summer of 2018. In order to prepare ourselves and achieve balance in our bodies we will reconnect with our landscape and heal our bodies through healthy life changes.
This GoFundMe is set up to financially support the Indigenous Women Hike in terms of organizing, gear, travel expenses, and a nutritionist. Being in the outdoors as a Paiute woman is a path to healing from collective and intergenerational trauma.
