Rainbow Tribe Friendsgiving
In prophecies and stories from many nations, from the Hopi and Zuni in the Southwest to the Cherokee in the Southeast, from the Cree in the far north, the great Sioux nations of the plains, to the Mayan people of the far south, the Rainbow was a focal point of spiritual belief. According to Native American beliefs, under the symbol of the rainbow, all races and religions will unite to spread the wisdom of living in harmony with each other and with all creatures.
“There will come a day when people of all races, colors, and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all Her children. They will move over the Earth like a great Whirling Rainbow, bringing peace, understanding and healing everywhere they go. Many creatures thought to be extinct or mythical will resurface at this time; the great trees that perished will return almost overnight. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of our Mother, the Earth.” - Navajo-Hopi Prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow
We affirm that we are the fabled Rainbow Tribe and the time is now!
This initiative is supported by an annual feast where we celebrate our community’s diverse cultures, a camp out to further unify our connection as family and a community fire where we can burn away the pain of the past and tell stories of a more harmonious future.
