Issue Opportunity: Northern Cheyenne Ft. Robinson Run

The Montana Afoot and Afloat course visits the Northern Cheyenne Nation in SE Montana in the fall. A crucial part of the tribe’s history is their escape from Ft. Robinson in Nebraska and return to their homeland in Montana. Each year a group of youth and elders retraces that distance, running in relays.

The organizers, Lynette Twobulls and Phillip Whiteman, have asked for help chaperoning (and running) for this year’s event, January 8-14. This would be an amazing experience and service to the Northern Cheyenne. Contact Lynette and Phillip at 406.477.8781.

Yellowbird Inc is the nonprofit cultural / conservation organization sponsoring the run.
