I have to say, connecting with the Hoka Hey Family has
changed my outlook on the world. Riding in the Hoka Hey Challenge is more than
a long distance challenge; it’s a moving experience that has set deep emotional
ties to a group of people I don’t even know.
I became involved three years ago as a rider (618) thinking
that winning the challenge was the goal. I spent many hours on the course,
sometimes with other riders in view, and other times spending hours alone.
During these times I knew it was about something other than winning, at least
for me. I was unable to finish the course on my motorcycle that first year, but
knew I had to be at the finish line for the other riders. I drove my truck to
the finish to show support and raise awareness for the Indian Nations that the
Hoka Hey Challenge is all about.
I have not been able to separate myself from the family of
riders and supporters of the Challenge from that time on. I was unable to
finish the second year due to a thoughtless driver that chose my side of the
road instead of his own. The Spirits that watch after the Hoka Hey riders and
the prayers of the Warriors, allowed me peace and the will to continue into the
I completed the third Challenge with the comfort of many of
the family members that I only know by the Warrior symbols we display on our
iron horses. I was blessed to be asked to the services for Chief Red Cloud and
was honored to be there. I spend my time talking to others about the Challenge,
the plight of the Indian Nations we traveled through, and the courage of the
Native people I have met along the way. The emotional and spiritual connection
made along the way will far outweigh any other symbol of completion.
To those who disagree with the purpose of the Hoka Hey
Challenge, I ask that the next time you travel through a National Forest, you
take a moment to thank the Native American that were forced to give up their
home, land, and way of life as they knew it. Look into the true reason the Hoka
Hey Challenge should be part of your life and lend a helping hand wherever
