April is here which means we are nearing the spring Adopt-A-Native-Elder food run. We are looking forward to loading our vehicle with Rainbow Food Boxes and other items at the warehouse and then driving the 582 miles from Salt Lake City to Winslow, Arizona where the group of volunteers will stage. On Wednesday, May 9th - the second of the three Food Run days - we will head out early and travel the last 95 miles or so to the Big Mountain site near Hardrock on the Navajo homeland. This is the location where we will see our Elder, Faye. I have been looking forward to this all winter – in fact it has inspired me to a quest of sorts.
