“The wellness movement is important to me every morning when I can. I used it to make my day go smoothly and overcome any challenges that day. I consider it traditional medicine and should be an essential tool for working professionals. If we can bring this awareness to our Indigenous professionals, there is much more we can do for our Indigenous communities, ”Stanford Lake (Navajo), one of the founders of REZ Kids Run, told Native News Online.
“I know this little move like this is good. Even if we create a small hole in a conference like RES Conference. Good medicine for us in the long run for our health, our spirit and our continuing way of our culture of running, ”said Lake.
