WE HAVE REACHED THE CROSSROADS
Ancient prophecies predicted the time that we find ourselves in today where population growth, over consumption, depletion of our natural resources and pollution have severely damaged our Earth’s life-sustaining capabilities.
Technologies of nuclear, chemical and biological warfare give us the power not only to wipe out all of humanity but also make the planet itself incapable of sustaining human life.
On an international level we have adopted materialism over conservation of the Earth’s limited resources forgetting that ‘the Earth is not a resource to be used but, rather, the source of life itself’ - Chief Arvol
Only a short time remains for us to return to our spiritual roots and begin to respect, honor and cherish our Mother - the Earth - on whom we depend for life itself. To do this the White Buffalo’s message of global
peace, harmony and unity must be sent to the Four Directions.
Spiritual Leaders of all Nations realize we have reached the Crossroads and we must put our hearts and minds together to find necessary solutions!
World Peace And Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites Day is an international celebration joining worldwide communities
of all faiths, nations, races, ages and genders who share concern for the welfare of humanity and the Earth to share in One Prayer.
As envisioned by Chief Arvol Looking Horse in 1996, the honoring ceremonies, invocations and prayers are observed with collaboration with local indigenous representatives. Special guest speakers, wisdom keepers and
activists of all denominations will share spiritual insight and discuss important environmental concerns and cures on both a local and global level. This profoundly auspicious time will be elevated by a cross-cultural celebration of music, dance and storytelling.
For the past decade, Red Earth Descendants has hosted an annual Elder/Youth Conference, encompassing four
days of traditional indigenous and elder teachings. Families attending the Elder/Youth camp have access to a wonderful array of camp experience, learning survival skills, medicinal plant/herb ecology, salmon and acorn restoration, crafting, storytelling,
Native stickball gaming, canoe-building/canoe teachings and much more. The indigenous-based teachings and skills practiced throughout our Elder/Youth Conferences help build a set of core values. These skills help lay the foundation for creating healthier
choices within our community for supporting sustainable life practices which in turn help one another and our earth.
With the blessing and guidance of Chief Arvol Looking Horse - 19th generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle and recognized spiritual leader of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Sioux Nation - we
are delighted to announce and invite all peoples to the 20th Annual World Peace And Prayer Day to be celebrated in Southern Oregon, June 18-21 2015.
All our relations!
In the Great Circle of Life,
Where there is no beginning
And no ending!
“all nations, all faiths, one prayer”
