The Elders also say the time is right for a collective healing from the trauma of the schools. This year, White Bison is hosting its fifth Sacred Hoop journey, the Wellbriety Journey for Forgiveness (formerly The Way Home Tour), to promote awareness of and healing from the historical trauma carried home from US Indian boarding schools.

The 40-day, 6,800-mile Journey begins May 16, 2009, at Chemawa Indian School in May 16 at the present-day Chemewa Indian School in Salem, Ore., and ends at the site of first Indian school at Carlisle, Penn., established in 1879.
At the conclusion of the Journey, a petition will be presented in Washington D.C. calling upon the President of the United States to formally apologize for abuses at the schools. Please visit www.wellbrietyjourney.org to sign the petition, find out how you can help and learn general information about the journey.
