A Gathering in the Spirit of the Elders in the Algonquin Tradition.
Modern ones are modeled on a traditional village gathering, called by the Pauwau, to promote individual and community healing.
... a participatory gathering of like minded people focusing on indigenous traditional practices for living together in harmony, cooperation, and mutual sovereignty, respecting self, each other, and Mother Earth, sharing our gifts with our neighbors and in the bounty of Earth. There is ceremony, demonstrations, drumming and dancing, food, items for purchase, singing, story telling, etc. Admission is by free will donation, supporting host organization. All are welcome. No one turned away.
