Native American Hand Drumming Circle in Support of Standing Rock (Ceremony)
Friday December 9 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm donation
with Grandfather Rick McBride
E&E Center 4301 N Fed Hwy, Pompano Beach. Please arrive promptly and please note this is an INDOOR drum circle.
There is great power to do good when we come together to pray. Drumming has long been understood as a prayer when we dedicate ourselves to it. The Protecters of Mini Wiconi (Sacred Water) have stood their ground now for several months, even as the temperatures drop and emotions heat up. The government, in its many incarnations, is starting to show its true nature; violence against its own citizens.
Youir tax dollars are funding them.
The most powerful way to counter this is through actions such as Standing Rock. And prayer in support of those out there taking the abuse from a government that positions itself in the world as the One and Only True Champion of Human Rights and the Rights of Nature.
Please join us. If you do not have a drum or rattle there will be drums and rattles to share. Older children are welcome when accompanied by a parent. There is no charge for Ceremony, but donations are accepted to support the continuation of the circle. It is traditional for women to wear skirts or dresses to Native American Ceremony. Please arrive promptly; it is important for everyone to be present at the start of the Ceremony.
