Longest Walk enters Utah

By Brenda Norrell

BAKER, Nevada -- The Longest Walk Northern Route leaves Baker today, enroute to Delta, Utah. Special thanks to the Salt Lake community for the truckload of food, clothing and funds for the Longest Walk Northern Route. Special thanks to Ella Dayzie, Navajo, executive director of the Salt Lake Indian Walk-In Center, and her family for transporting the donations. They found the Longest Walkers at dinner, where they were treated at the Border Innt on the Nevada and Utah border.
Te-Moak Western Shoshone also found the Long Walkers at the Home Farm, where they received hospitality for two nights. The Te-Moaks are the great-grandchildren of Old Man Temoke, one of the signers of the Treaty of Ruby Valley of 1863. Visiting the Long Walkers for prayers and songs were Jeremiah Jones, Marlene Dick, Norris Honeyestewa and Anissa Dick.
The Longest Walk Northern Route will be in Delta, Utah, tonight, Monday night, March 3.
