Inipi on Sunday 8/28.

As was shared a the last meeting with the Historical Society, we are no longer barred from starting our Sacred Fire before the Inipi Ceremonies, so those of us that will be helping with the fire will be gathering before 2:00 PM and start the Fire around 2:00 PM.  We will go in the lodge around 4:00 PM.  We should be able to have the Feast around 7:00 PM and start cleanup around 8:00 PM.  Everyone is welcome for the feast whether they Sweat with us or not and whether they bring food or not.  The more, the merrier!  I do let people in the Inipi after we start, so just knock, and the door will be opened.  Or you may bring a chair and sit close to the Sweat Lodge and pray with us and learn the songs from the outside at any time!
SERVICE OPPORTUNITY:  WE COULD USE EXTRA HELP CLEANING UP EVEN IF YOU DON’T SWEAT WITH US!
