It was an honor to be  in the presence of Dr. Chief Arvol Looking Horse, “Keeper of the Sacred Pipe” Lakota/Sioux Nation and Founding Advisory Board member of The World Peace Prayer Society.  Chief Arvol Looking Horse led the group in a very sacred ( peace pipe- c’anunpa) prayer ceremony offering prayers of gratitude and prayers for healing for Mother Earth and All Life on Earth!

As the youth were preparing to start the run, two red-tailed hawks circled above—an unexplainable sense of “well being”was clearly present among all.
