Journey For Forgiveness makes its way to DC
The Wellbriety Journey for Forgiveness is about halfway through its 40-day, 6,800-mile journey across the nation.

The walk began May 16 at the Chemawa Indian School in Oregon. Participants have so far 14 current and former Indian boarding school sites in hopes at healing the abuses suffered by students.

"For some people, the boarding school was OK. For some others, it was a prison camp. In my case, it was terrible," Mitch Walking Elk, a member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma, told RezNet News. He attended four Indian boarding schools.

The walk was organized by White Bison Inc.. The final stop is the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., on June 24.
