World Peace and Prayer Day Ceremony 2016

On the brink of this 21st annual honoring of World Peace and Prayer Day, people across the world have been instructed and encouraged by Chief Arvol Looking Horse to pray in their own sacred places on June 21 with focus on bringing peace and balance into our collective consciousness by connecting to the land. . .to our Mother Earth. However you choose to honor this day, we are grateful for your attention to the social and environmental concerns facing us during this time of change and conflict.

Response to Occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Headquarters

Our organization, Red Earth Descendants, has been asked to voice a response to the recent militant occupation of the Wildlife Refuge in Malheur County in northeast Oregon. Since the occupation is potentially volatile and full of political agendas from many entities, R.E.D. has not issued a statement until now, due to the respect we pay to our tribal elders. R.E.D. itself is not a political organization; yet, we understand that there are times when politics intersect with land rights, which in turn intersects with cultural identity and survival.

Please mark your calendars for our upcoming Storytelling Conference! It will be December 19, 2015 @ the Bellview Grange in Ashland, 4 - 8 p.m., potluck and cozy storytelling to celebrate the lessons (and entertainment!) through this oral tradition. Featured storyteller will be Kalapuya teller Esther Stutzman. We look forward to seeing you at the Grange!
