BENEFITING: CASCADIA EDUCATION PROJECT INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 06, 2014
We have traded wolves for cows, wildness for domestication. If we lose our wild teachers, what will become of us?
While Oregon celebrates OR-7, or "Journey" as he is now called, just beyond the eastern state line is a place where wolf-killing is celebrated just as brazenly. From commonplace bumperstickers with phrases such as "smoke a pack a day" to organized wolf-killing derbies.
From Portland to Boise, ID, a journey of over 400 miles on foot, Mato Woksape (Lakota) is organizing an Indigenous led prayer walk for the wolf in the style of the ancient foot messengers. The Cascadia Education Project is acting as fiscal sponsor for the prayer walk up until it reaches its destination. All donations will go directly to supporting the prayer walkers on their path.
Mato has been a dedicated wolf advocate for years and now invites others to join him. The participants will need basic supplies (food, camping gear, etc) to make the journey which will take up to four weeks. Please support however you can.
Volunteers are still being recruited for the following positions: documentation/videographer, cook, support cars. If you are able to participate, please contact Mato (208) 412-3184
