article- Honoring the Sacred – the importance of sacred and spiritual sites

 

Honoring the Sacred

The powerful connection between Humans and Sacred Sites

“Since the beginning of time people have picked special places on the land to honor their connections with all of life. This act of creating a space for the sacred allows a divine power of connection to arise within each of us. A connection to our community, to nature, to spirit, to the future, to the past. In an age where land has become a commodity for development or extraction, the need to claim, protect, and celebrate sacred sites is more important than ever. Luckily we have the wisdom of indigenous elders to guide us back to this important and sacred connection to all things.”

Native Caucus Invitation (August 18-20) – For Indigenous folks from all nations!

The Social Forum is scheduled for August 21-24 (Thurs-Sun) in Ottawa. The potential for good to come from this is tremendous, but the need for all of our Original Peoples’Caucus to meet ahead of time is more important.
This is an invitation to start our strategizing for positive solutions by meeting together before the Social Forum.

Our invitation is to meet August 18-20 (Mon-Wed) near Poltimore, Quebec, which is 30 minutes from Ottawa. Neecha Dupuis’s parents have offered their land located on 200 acres with a private lake. Bring your camping gear and tents. Remember to bring your personal items (soap, towel, etc.). Cooking can be taken care of by friends who helped with Theresa Spence’s kitchen staff. Because this is potluck, we request food donation and/or money donations.

Any further information or suggestions can be emailed to either of our contacts listed below.
This separate time will give all of us the opportunity to strategize together. Good minds coming together in our own way.

Hope to see you there.
Nya:weh,
Wes Elliot, wes.at.6@gmail.com
Neecha Dupuis, neecha@hotmail.com
