Youth Pilgrimage Against Drugs
Since 2005 we have brought together politicians, judges, law enforcement officers, treatment providers, and the youth of our area in order to walk and pray together from Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo to the Santuario de Chimayo.
This has given us the opportunity to talk about the drug problems we have and the roles these different groups play in working out the solutions to these problems. We do this as we are walking and sharing on our way to El Santuario de Chimayo.
