There is a long history in Native America of these types of healing walks. The Refinery Corridor Healing Walks were inspired by the Tar Sands Healing Walks in Alberta, Canada, the Longest Walks, and the Peace & Dignity Journeys. This is the third year of the Healing Walks. Please join Idle No More SF Bay at the 3rd Healing Walk this year.
