Long Walkers at Intertribal Friendship House

By Brenda Norrell
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Long Walkers from the northern route 2008 at the Intertribal Friendship House in Oakland on Thursday, after the Alcatraz Sunrise Gathering: Paul, Tomas, Sage, Shaleen and Aislyn. The five month walk began in February of 2008 at Alcatraz and concluded in Washington D.C. in July 2008. Some of the Long Walkers are now on the Shellmound Walk, which will protest the desecration of the Ohlone Shellmounds. A shopping center in Emeryville was constructed on Ohlone graves. The protest on Friday comes as the Shellmound Walkers conclude a two week walk. Photos Brenda Norrell
