The 27th annual Sacred Hoop Run began its 500 mile trip around the Black Hills Monday morning in South Dakota at Bear Butte…a site held sacred by many American Indian tribes.
The run was started to emphasize drug and alcohol-free lifestyles, spirituality, treaty rights, and education. Spokesman Duane Martin Sr says more than 300 people of all ages are taking part, with about 2 dozen traveling the entire distance.
