The Story Of this Sacred Land

this is about the land that holds this lodge.An ancient grinding stone put here eons ago and around which Native women once ground their grain,told the stories that guided the children, made the items for ceremonial use, called out the Name for this Lodge Circle in a dream. When the dream was shared with elders, the land was blessed and dedicated for a place of prayer for the people.this is a place of peace. Eagles circle when lodge preparations begin, Hawks stay close to remind us this is a sacred protected place; sage grows on all sides. Many have come here sharing their energy and their prayers, many more have yet to come. Ceremonial leaders share the Wisdom and Ways of the ancestors that the Circle of Life may be healed and whole. ...........Mi tiku oyasin. We are all relatives
