They say this is the day to go into ceremony with Mother Earth, but if you walk the Red road then every day we are in ceremony with Mother Earth.

For we follow the original instructions shared to us from the One who is greater and handed down to us from our Ancestors, who speaks to our heart that we must be grateful and give thanks everyday for the abundance and unconditional love Mother Earth gives us all.

Now Mother Earth and all her life that lives upon her skin are having a party without us receiving an invitation, they are the happiest they have ever been not being pushed aside by man’s presence, pollution and destruction.

We must be a people that looks through the eyes and can feel from the heart of other life and not just our own, if we want to bring great healing to the Sacred Hoop.
