We've had a lot of inquiries lately about camping at Howard Prairie Lake Resort while attending World Peace and Prayer Day June 18-21, and here is the low-down about HOW to do this--to reserve your camp site at Howard Prairie, simply call the Jackson County Parks Department, 541-774-8183, during their open hours, to reserve your space. They will tell you what camp sites will be close to the gathering. The fee is $18 per night, and they will let you know how to go about reservations and payment.

PLEASE consider donating to this GoFundMe campaign!!! Red Earth Descendants will host World Peace and Prayer Day 2015, and in our usual grassroots spirit, we will need serious funding to bring our elders, wisdom keepers and international guests here to the gathering in June. We are hosting as a community, and we need your help.
For ten memorable years, Red Earth Descendants have hosted and sponsored dozens of events, projects, camps and community service activities, free of charge for our community. We have considered it the highest honor to serve the People. It is an auspicious and amazing privilege to host the 20th Annual World Peace and Prayer Day gathering, with Arvol Looking Horse attending and officiating, representing a beautiful prayer in action for us. We thank you, our community, for considering making a donation to help fund the enormity of this gathering. Please click "read more" below!

World Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites Day is in its 20th year of international celebration. Ceremonies will be held under the guidance of Chief Arvol Looking Horse and Elders of the local Tribal Nations with prayers and offerings from attending Wisdom Keepers, Elders and honored guests. We encourage people of all Nations to step forward in recognizing the value of their own cultural roots and in so doing, reconnecting with the strengths and wisdom that all traditional cultures hold in common--our connection to each other and to the Earth.
