Healing at the Heart of Niagara Event, Goat Island, Niagara Falls, NY

Since interviewing Native Algonquin, Mike Bastine, I’ve come into contact with some incredible folks.  Jill Morris, board member of Neto Hatinakwe Onkwehowe (www.netobuffalo.org) is one such incredible person.  She and others are organizing an amazing event featuring local Native American culture and history at Niagara Falls State Park, Goat Island, Niagara Falls, NY.

I’ll be there, and if you’re in the area, I’d love to see you there too.

Here are some of the many events taking place that weekend:

  • Native American music and dancing
  • Native arts and crafts vendors
  • Drumming
  • Local Native lore and legends
  • Native crafting for the kiddo’s
  • Healing arts
  • Sustainable living presentations

There will also be devotional ceremonies to promote healing and peace for our global community and the Mother (Earth).  A hand-holding ceremony for Global Peace will take place at 11:11 am on Sunday the 17th.

The whole event kicks off Saturday, June 16th, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.  The event resumes on Sunday, June 17th, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Everyone is welcome, and I hope to see you there!
