BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

In Algonquin tradition, prayer ribbons are created as a representation of our honor and respect for humankind, the natural world, and the Spirit that guides us to convey a message of harmony with nature and each other. The Prayer Ribbon Workshop at White Rose Farm welcomes a community gathering to learn the tradition of prayer ribbons and how they speak to finding unity in diversity within America.  The event runs from 1:30pm – 5:30pm, and afterwards people are invited to stay for food, dancing, singing, and drumming around a fire circle.  Feel free to bring your own drums and instruments.  More information and registration information can be found online.
