– SATURDAY JUNE 20th at 4PM PT / 5 MT / 6 CT / 7 ET / 8PM AT –
Event co-hosted by Seeding Sovereignty and Chief Arvol Looking Horse.
Together with Arvol, Paula manages World Peace and Prayer Day which was founded in 1995 and has since been held annually around the world at Sacred Sites. Their work with World Peace and Prayer Day & Honoring Sacred Sites Day, has been tirelessly devoted to advocating, helping, and supporting all Indigenous people to protect their land, rights, language, ceremonies, and Indigenous knowledge.
Funds raised will support Chief Arvol’s work to honor sacred sites, Seeding Sovereignty, the film impact campaign “No More Sacrificed Communities” and the Stop The Formosa Campaign: black communities on the frontline taking a stand against a massive plastic factory on the banks of the Mississippi River in St. James, Louisiana.
Following the birth of a White Buffalo Calf in 1994, the Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe for the Lakota, Dakota, Nakota Nations, Arvol Looking Horse, was directed to honor the Four Directions with ceremony on June 21st. According to Lakota Star Knowledge, the birth of Miracle, a female white buffalo, signaled a time of earth changes and the coming of the mending of the Hoop of All Nations. The Summer Solstice is said to be a powerful time to pray for peace and harmony among all Living Beings. Mother Earth’s gifts, the air, water plant, animal and rock nations must be allowed to heal if we are to live in harmony with Her.
All Nations recognize Sacred Sites as Places to gather or perform private ceremony. For countless generations these Sites were honored, cherished and strengthened through ceremony and Our Mother remained healthy. To ensure the lives of future generations for all our relations, we must begin again to honor, cherish and renew Our Mother.
