                                      THE JOURNEY
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Peace and Dignity Journeys are spiritual runs that embody the prophecy of the Eagle and Condor. This prophecy mandates that at this time all Indigenous Peoples in the Western Hemisphere shall be reunited in a spiritual way in order to heal our nations so we can begin to work towards a better future for our children and generations to come.

Through the Journeys, participant runners and supporters work to accomplish this goal by helping each other reconnect to their respective spiritual practices and traditions; by helping each other relearn our role in the world as Indigenous Peoples; and by reminding each other of our responsibilities to Mother Earth, Father Sky, our communities, and ourselves.

Peace and Dignity Journeys occur every four years and start with Indigenous runners on opposite ends of the continents (Chickaloon, Alaska and Tierra del Fuego, Argentina). They run for six months through hundreds of Indigenous communities where they participate in their respective spiritual practices and traditions; spark dialogue on the issue of peace and dignity for Indigenous Peoples; model their responsibility to Mother Earth, Father Sky, communities, and themselves; and receive the community’s prayers.

These prayers and conversations are then carried to proceeding communities until the runners reach the center of the hemisphere. When the runners meet at the Kuna Nation in Panama City, Panama, it will symbolize all Indigenous Peoples joining together in a spiritual way to manifest the prophecy of the Eagle and Condor. The Eagle represents the North and the Condor represents the South. Long ago prophecies were shared that when the North and South joined healing and empowerment of our communities would take place.

                                             HISTORY
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

In 1990, over 200 representatives of Indigenous nations from throughout the western hemisphere met for the first time in Quito, Ecuador. There, they witnessed the unfolding prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor. The inspiration of spiritual running to re-unite the nations of turtle island surfaced from the elders. Elders from North, Central and South America remember and talk about a prophecy that foretold how we will come together and reunite as one… “we are like a body that was broken up into pieces and this body will come back together to be whole again”.

Peace & Dignity Journeys became part of the realization. Through Peace & Dignity Journeys, numerous and diverse indigenous nations reunite and reclaim dignity for their families and communities.


In 1992 the first Peace & Dignity Journey was completed. It continued again in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012, where the people involved realized that Peace & Dignity Journeys was a powerful form of prayer that was beginning to unite and heal their nations.

                                                GOALS

Peace & Dignity Journeys’ purpose is to attain the following goals amongst first nations of the North and South American continents, that which is known to be the unification of the Eagle and the Condor.

1. Initiating spiritual runs as a prayer to heal our nations.

2. Honoring our Ancestors, Elders, Children, Medicine Peoples Heroes, Leaders, Future Generations, and all those who are in the Spirit world.

3. Reinforcing unity among all first indigenous nations from North, Central, and South America.

4. Recognize over 500 years of strength and survival of Indigenous people’s self determination to preserve language, culture, and spirituality.

5. Informing the world of our desire for a peaceful coexistence with the four sacred colors of the world.

6. Making people aware of the sacredness and delicate balance of nature and the environment.

7. Honoring our Ancestors and Elders for their skills in administration, healing, knowledge of herbal medicine, animal husbandry, agriculture, and for sharing their knowledge with the younger generations.

8. Promoting a cultural exchange between First Nations, where languages, art, dance, music, and ceremonies can be shared and respected.
