On January 8th-14th, Conscious Alliance will be joining our community partners Yellow Bird Inc. to sponsor the Fort Robinson Spiritual Outbreak Run, a 400-mile journey from Fort Robinson, Nebraska to Busby, Montana. The run was created as a way for Northern Cheyenne youth to pay homage to their ancestors that 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 and the current location of the Northern Cheyenne Reservation.
Due to your overwhelming support, Conscious Alliance was able to send teams to both the Northern Cheyenne and Pine Ridge Reservations this past weekend to distribute a truck full of healthy food to each community. Collectively we distributed upwards of 7,000 meals to the reservations!
