|Wednesday, March 5th- Fort Mojave Arrival|
We had a very short walk today because we had covered so many miles yesterday – but it was quite the two mile trek!
We left the city park campground (which was a good thing because we would've completely blown away if we had stayed any longer – the wind was epic!) and walked down to the Fort Mohave Indian Reservation Elementary School.
When we first arrived at our circle we were greeted by Tribal singer Larry who sang a few beautiful songs for us accompanied by young women dancers.
We continued our walk and were met by the local marching band (!!) before we had a grand circle and were introduced to the Fort Mohave Tribal Chairmen. We felt so honored, the reception was incredibly warm.
Dennis said a few words and then we all gathered to sing the Longest Walk 2 song and the American Indian Movement song followed by a dance by our very own Wayne! Short walk – big day!
