The Peace and Dignity Journeys is a spiritual movement, a ceremonial run that retraces the steps of our ancestors to connect indigenous communities. The Peace and Dignity Journeys started in 1992 to fulfill the prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor and continue in the spirit of the traditions of our ancestors. Every four years indigenous communities all over north, central and south America witness and share lifeways, stories, songs, dance and wisdom by receiving runners in the home community’s ceremonial ways.”
