Join Native elders for water ceremony
The Mothers of the Sacred We travel the globe offering love, healing and support.

Join the Grandmothers of the Sacred We as they hold a water ceremony Sept. 13 to bless and pray for the waters of the Great Lakes.

The Grandmothers are members of indigenous tribes from around the world who travel the globe — from Standing Rock to the People’s Climate March — offering love, healing and support that acknowledges the interconnectedness of all.

Their water ceremony is part of an event called Caring for the Earth With the Elders, hosted by the Transformations Spirituality Center and the John E. Fetzer Institute. The event is set for 4-9 p.m., with the water ceremony at 4 p.m. at Spring Valley Park, 2606 Mount Olivet Road.

After the water ceremony, starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Fountains Banquet Center, 535 S. Riverview Drive, there will be a dinner inspired by Native American cuisine as well as drumming and circle dancing.

Attending the water ceremony is free of charge but does require advance registration, since space is limited. Tickets for the dinner, dancing and drumming are $25.
