Every January, Conscious Alliance sponsors the Fort Robinson Outbreak Spiritual Run, a 400-mile journey from Fort Robinson, Nebraska to Busby, Montana. Coordinated by Phillip Whiteman Jr. and Lynette Two Bulls (yellowbirdinc.org
/Medicine Wheel Model) from their home in Lame Deer, Montana, the run was created to pay homage to Northern Cheyenne ancestors who broke out of Fort Robinson on January 9, 1879. Most of them were killed at this time, but a few survived and made it to their homeland, the Powder River country in Southeastern Montana. Because of this sacrifice, they now have the Northern Cheyenne Reservation.
The runners are Northern Cheyenne youth who commit to running day and night for five days in January weather conditions to honor their ancestors and their history.
