ELTON, LOUISIANA – The Longest Walk 5 – War on Drugs and Domestic Violence made its way from Oklahoma into Arkansas and onto Louisiana this week as it makes it way to Washington, D.C.

The long walkers were welcomed and taken care of extremely well by the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana. Staying at the Coushatta Inn in Elton, Louisiana, the long walkers were treated like family. The tribe supplied the means and resources to fix and repair a truck the walkers will use as a support vehicle transporting gear.

During the day while the truck was being worked on we were fed lunch and Mike Tarply shared facts of how a Sacred Burial Mound on tenth South Parish Wild life Refugee in North East Louisiana was disturbed and broken into shambles by government workers. The burial  Mounds were first identified in 1934 by a Mr. Moore.
