On August 13th, 2019, a Diné woman began a 330-mile prayer run to bring a medicine bundle from Bears Ears National Monument to the Salt Lake City capitol for the United Nations Civil Society Conference, ending finally at the historic Warm Springs building int he heart of Salt Lake, and she didn’t stop there. Davina Smith is now running to become the first female Diné state representative, in the newly configured District 69, which covers about one-third of our state.

Through her personal stories, Davina will guide us through an evening of recognition of that undeniable draw to our deep purpose, and the journey in embracing the soulful cry for the world we wish to see manifest.
