The Anishinaabe Solidarity Relay began in 1989. It was a response to racism and hatred directed towards Ojibwe people at boat landings and elsewhere after hunting and fishing treaty rights were affirmed by United States Supreme Court. Today, the Healing Circle Run, which takes place July 13-20, continues to connect Ojibwe communities across the ceded territory in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. For participants and observers, it provides healing and relief through collective running, walking, and prayer.
