The 2006 Sacred Run kick-off con­cert was record­ed Feb­ru­ary 10, 2006 at Stu­dioZ in San Fran­cis­co. The run began the fol­low­ing morn­ing, from San Fran­cis­co to Wash­ing­ton, D.C. This 4,500 mile, 71 day walk and run event went through Native Nations, down to New Orleans to wit­ness first hand the dev­as­ta­tion of Hur­ri­cane Kat­ri­na, through the Smokey Moun­tains vis­it­ing with trib­al peo­ple who refused to go to Okla­homa dur­ing the Trail of Tears era, then to Wash­ing­ton, D.C., to deliv­er a firm mes­sage of “All Life is Sacred” to the Nation.

Sacred Run His­to­ry
Since ancient time, run­ning has been a sacred tra­di­tion among Native peo­ple. In 1977, the run was rein­tro­duced when the Elder’s Cir­cle decid­ed ti was time to spread the mes­sage, “All Life is Sacred”, across the world. Start­ing with The Longest Walk, in 1978, the spir­i­tu­al walk ans Sacred Run has trav­eled over the con­ti­nents spread­ing its sacred mes­sage.

Today, The Sacred Run is an annu­al event orga­nized by the Nowa Cumig Insti­tute (Sacred Run Foun­da­tion) con­tin­u­ing the sacred mes­sage, focus­ing on evolv­ing issues and con­cerns of Native Amer­i­cans, and rein­forc­ing the impor­tance of pre­serv­ing the Native Amer­i­can cul­ture & tra­di­tions for all future gen­er­a­tions.

Pro­ceeds from the Sacred Run CD ben­e­fit the non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion, Nowa Cumig Insti­tute, which funds Sacred Run, and sup­ports var­i­ous Native Amer­i­can Youth pro­grams. For infor­ma­tion please vis­it: www.sacredrun.org and www.nowacuming.org

We ded­i­cate this record­ing to Bill Wah­pepah who was a good friend of the Bay Area musi­cians. In 2007, we will com­mem­o­rate the 20th year of his pass­ing into the spir­it world and also to Mag­gie Deo­cam­po Eisen­bise, who gave her pre­cious time to this and many oth­er Sacred Runs, and has since passed into the spir­it world.
