What: 5th Annual Sunrise Ceremony Gathering ( to connect with the Sunrise Ceremony on Alcatraz on Thanksgiving) – This event is one day on Thursday November 24, 2011, sunrise 8:00 am.
The sunrise ceremony the continuing effort of a reconciliation process that is happening in Olympia. We have had dialogues with all the Native and Non Native Peoples that were willing to come and share their stories through reconciliation meetings, as well as video presentations of how our past unfolded.
Our hope is by bri…nging people together through the path of the sacred it will provide a safe place that invite natives and non natives a place to come so we are all able to build relationships between both worlds.
“I would suggest that Thanksgiving, go beyond the gratefulness of the harvest and should be dedicated as well to all our ancestors and give thanks for the things they have taught us.”- Barry White Crow Higgins
I am putting this out there because it is getting colder in most places and its been cold in other places for some time now. There are children and elders without the items they need to stay warm. Goodthinking is shipping out items to many different areas in Indian Country. it will help bring more warmth to the people. I will be collecting donations at the door to help with the shipping cost along with gently used clothing, blankets etc. Come and learn how you can be a part of the healing.

Nov. 8th Tepco will begin moving over 1000 dangerous fuel rods, many giving their lives to do it. 2001 WPPD statement ending from Chief Arvol Looking Horse, I think it fits this terrible scenario we are ALL facing about Fukashima: “You must decide. You can’t avoid it. Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind. Did you think the Creator would create unnecessary people in a time of such terrible danger? Know that you yourself are essential to this World. Believe that! Understand both the blessing and the burden of that. You yourself are desperately needed to save the soul of this World. Did you think you were put here for something less?”
We Have our History to Tell. The panel is to bring and gain an understanding, through Indigenous perspective a sense of place.
