The organizers of Wake Up The Earth Festival (10:00 AM Jamaica Plain MA May 6, 2017) have invited the Native American community to lead the opening parade and to have someone say a prayer during the opening ceremony (12:00 noon) The organizing is ongoing and we are asking people to wear their regalia and help lead the parade. The water protectors can carry the wonderful banners we used to support our people at standing rock. A strong showing from the Native Community will be good medicine for everyone.
We are working on funding for a drum and perhaps some other performers. The organizers can provide some funding for the drum but it would be nice to have additional performers. Let us know if you plan to be in the parade or if you are interested in helping sponsor drummers and singers.
Stay tuned for developing details.
