Connecting with Indigenous Roots with Christian Gering


Christian Gering is a multimedia artist and one of the fastest ultra runners in America. Even though he’s built a career as a sponsored athlete, he doesn’t just run to win races. For Christian, running connects him with his Indigenous heritage and inspires him to create. Hailing from Katishtya (San Felipe Pueblo) and the Pi’pil people of El Salvador, Christian discovered that running can be a form of prayer. He’s celebrating his connection to the earth by running routes traveled by his ancestors.
