Across the World 2006
“YES!” We are done with our commitment! World Peace and Prayer Day returned to the Black Hills of South Dakota for a “Thank You” (wopila) ceremony after traveling to South America, Ireland, Africa, Australia and Japan, as we joined in activating their Sacred Sites with united prayer. We also continue to work towards having June 21st recognized by the United Nations as “Honoring Sacred Sites Day”, in an effort to protect places that people consider sacred.
IN 2005, Cristina Perez and Kendell Bohn from KC Fine Art Studios who created the beautiful white animal designs that we’ve used for our commemoratives. Christina, by the way, was involved with WPPD in our last Wopila when we traveled the four directions on Turtle Island in 2000, so we’re glad to have her back. Our third artist, is our very own Grace Horne (Wodakota Youth Council). Among her many attributes, Graci is a talented watercolorist and has been busy creating a special piece for this years gathering. Stay tuned for the unveiling…
