Initiating the American Peace March
Ceremony Re-Dedicating Washington Monument

Felipe Chavez, of the Rainbow Family Kid Village Kitchen who helped conduct the Global Peace Walk of 1995 across country from New York to San Francisco for the United Nations 50th anniversary to inaugurate the UN 1995-2004 International Decade of the World's Indigenous Peoples, conducted a Sacred Pipe Ceremony with about 30 people at the Washington Monument on October 24, 2003, to inaugurate the American Peace March on as the Steps for Peace Walk was approaching New York City on its way to Washington DC and ending in San Francisco on February 29, 2003. Several routes of the American Peace March were scheduled and a couple of local walks did happen, in Atlanta, and in Madison Wisconsin, but for the most part this project still has not "fired up".
