Valley Community Members Spearhead Donation Drive for Turtle Island Healing Ceremony
In Wolfville, local community members have begun fundraising to support this year’s Healing the Wounds of Turtle Island Ceremony, set to take place on July 12-15 in Passadumkeag Maine. This event marks the third year in a 21 year ceremony. Organizers note that all are invited to attend this free gathering, no RSVP necessary:
“We invite people from all corners of the Earth to join us in this healing ceremony. We will come together to heal the common wound that we all carry from our shared history of violence; to heal the wounds carried by Mother Earth, and; to heal the imprint of those wounds in the energy field overlaying the land. We all share the impacts of these wounds, and we must all come together to heal them.”
Those who wish to donate can do so directly at the Box of Delights, EOS, Kingsport Studios, and at the non-profit booth at the Wolfville Farmer’s Market June 1, and enter the Wolfville area raffle fundraiser toward the ceremony. Prizes will include a copy of Sacred Instructions by Sherri Mitchell, a talking stick made by Elder “Dr.” Joe Michael, and 2 other Indigenous books.
The draw for prizes will take place at special event on June 15 at 3pm at the Box of Delights, 466 Main St Wolfville. For further details see boxofdelightsbooks.com/events/
