The Mitakuye Foundation has been honored to support The 500 Mile Sacred Hoop Run for the last 7 years!
The kids run in prayer for 5 days in a 500 mile relay to sacred sites around the Black Hills. It is a powerful and important event that brings children, families, and communities together from across the reservation.
Thank You to everyone who has supported the runners! This year we were able to provide several thousand dollars of support, including the annual commemorative t-shirts. A special shout-out to Josh Fox who featured the runners in his film, Awake, and to Jeri Baker and ONE SPIRIT who helped provide food, gas, and supplies! We have been documenting the Run since 2012 and will be featuring it in our upcoming film, The Heart of Everything That Is.
