"Also worth noting [in Chris Eyre's new film] is the beautiful and soulful “Edge of America” soundtrack, much of which is provided by singer/songwriter Annie Humphrey. The name of the film is taken from one of her songs, which is based on a poem by author/activist John Trudell."
from an article in The Native Voice, by Lise Balk King

FootPrints for Peace is a grassroots organization, we organize and assist others in organizing running and walking events. Through these events we hope to pray with our feet, have the time and space to learn about other cultures and heal the Earth as we heal ourselves. On these pilgrimages every step is a prayer and every mile is a new ceremony.
