Beginning March 28th, West Los Angeles
This year’s 9th Spirit Run is set to take place on Saturday March 28, 2015 from approximately 6am – 3pm. The Four Corners Spirit Run in alliance with the Pico Youth & Family Center and the Gabrielino Tongva Springs Foundation will host heir 9th Annual Four Corners Spirit Run on March 28th, 2015. The Four Corners Spirit Run was started in 2006 by local Indigenous spiritual activists with the intention of providing the Mexican/Native American youth & families in West Los Angeles with culturally relevant community building programs as well as to promote the development of positive Indigenous identity & values.
Please support and join! Everybody is welcome to participate in whatever way they can.. Run, Ceremonial Stops, Driving, Clean-up, or just share & join the good vibes!
This is a Prayer Run in Westside Los Angeles done in Indigenous ceremonial fashion. It will start with a Sunrise Ceremony at Ballona Wetlands (Huaxpet/Sa’agna) near Lincoln & Jefferson Blvds at 5:30 am in Playa del Rey. The Sunrise ceremony will be conducted by Tongva representaive(s), the Indigenous Nation of the L.A. Basin.
The Spirit Runners will run carrying their vision and prayers through the Traditional Communities and Sacred Sites of West Los Angeles. At every stop we share ceremonial songs, history, and positive visions for these communities and Sacred Sites.
There are 5 segments to the Run and they average between 2-4 miles for a total of approximately 12 miles. One can Run as much or as little as they want.
The Ceremony stops include Sa’agna/Huaxpet (Play del Rey) , Mar Vista Family center (Culver City), Oakwood Park (Venice), Pico Youth & Family Center/Tongva Park (Santa Monica), Stoner Park (Sotel), and will culminate early afternoon at Kuruvunga Springs on the campus of University High School in West Los Angeles where we will enjoy with closing ceremony and Thanksgiving.
Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to participate
in which ever they can.
Many ways to Participate- Not everyone has to run.
One’s presence and good energy there with us on this short
journey and celebration is all that is needed.
