Monthly Newsletter Highlights
Welcome to Voices of Wisdom! This month we highlight Indigenous materials influenced by traditional festivals and ceremonies.
Across the Americas, August is a month of celebration. In Latin America, it is the start of the planting season, marked by ceremonies giving thanks to Pachamama [Mother Earth] for the past harvest, asking for fertile land, and praying for rain. In North America, the summertime marks the height of intertribal gatherings like pow-wows. The following materials highlight the importance of ritual and the power of ceremony in sustaining individuals, communities, and the land.
