Run Of The Ancestors
For four years in the early 90s, Sacred Run led by Dennis Banks, sponsored the Run of The Ancestors, a 500 mile tri-state run carrying the message “All Life Is Sacred.” This running event took place in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio, starting and finishing at the Chief Little Turtle Statue on the banks of the Ohio River in Covington, KY.
