Blessing of the Red One Year Anniversary

« Back to calendar « Previous Event | Next Event »
Saturday May 20, 2017 1:00 PM - 7:00 PM


In October of 2015, the family of Jill Tardiff, came to me and asked if we could smudge and pray the river for the family, so that they can get a little closure and be able to feel a little comfort within the river. It was just supposed to be a little ceremony, but turned out to be an event to bless the river of those lost by murder and suicide, it is also a community event that builds that community of divide, it also brings together each and everyone of us together.


The blessing of the river has become an important event, as not only to have closure for those families who have lost someone within the river but to build community and come together to build friendship, it is open to all. It will also be a time not only bless the river but to open the season of spring and to bloom friendship.


We would need pipe carriers, drummers, singers, Elders, etc:


The blessing will include:


gifts for those who attend

flowers to offer to the river

tobacco ties




More to come as time gets closer...Please share and come out and celebrate our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSAY, OF BLESSING OF THE RIVER
