Jordan, a fourth generation runner and citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe in South Dakota, uses running as a platform to advocate for issues important to indigenous people. She especially advocates for missing and murdered indigenous women and girls (MMIW), wearing red face paint to allow her body to become a vehicle for this advocacy, and praying for women by name as she runs. This conversation sheds light on her motivations and her deep commitment to ensuring that indigenous voices are at the forefront of building a better future for their communities.
