June27, 2018~ The following day we participated in an event for Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women, Children & Men organized by Sage Trudell (John Trudell's daughter). This included many people speaking of their currently disappeared loved ones & the anguish of not knowing where they are or what may have happened to them. Following the speaking of many, the entire group walked through Rapid City led by Traditional Drum & Singers & Eagle Staffs carried led by Delbert High Hawk to Art Alley where a mural had been painted on a wall which all were invited to put up a name of any victimized loved one & to which I added Rose Downwind. Following this event we all loaded up & headed north to complete our Long Walk Home to Leech Lake for Nawacomig.
