AIM walk reaches into Robeson


PEMBROKE — “The Longest Walk 5,” an American Indian Movement-sponsored trek across America to bring attention to drug and domestic violence problems plaguing American Indians, will step into Robeson County on Saturday.

The 3,600-mile trek that began in LaJolla, Calif., on Feb. 13, is scheduled to conclude July 15 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Leading the walk is Dennis Banks, who in 1968 co-founded the American Indian Movement as a way to protect the traditional ways of American Indians and to pursue litigation protecting their treaty rights.
