September 8, 2020

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Jordan Daniel, Son Sanchez and Eric Hardy run down John Stockton Drive in Salt Lake City on Saturday, Sept. 5, 2020. Ten Native American runners ran from Bears Ears National Monument to SLC for the "Running As Medicine - Indigenous Youth Prayer Run".

Willson Atene did not run hundreds of miles across Utah this week for himself.

"I ran for my family. I ran for my brothers and sisters. I ran for the Earth. I ran for Bears Ears. I ran for the sky," said Atene, of Monument Valley. "I ran for all these living beings here."

Along the way, he and and his fellow runners left their footprints, providing new thoughts and ideas for future generations to follow.
