Postponed: The Sacred Hoop of 100 Eagle Feathers Ceremony w/ Honored Guest Don Coyhis
November 17 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Out of respect we are announcing the postponement of the Ceremony of the Hoop of 100 Feathers until a future date . We will announce the new date when we have one.
The Birth of White Bison and Wellbriety:
The Sacred Hoop of the Wellbriety Movement was born from a vision in 1994, not long after Miracle, the first white buffalo calf, was born on August 20 in Janesville, Wisconsin. In that vision, an Indian man saw a willow sapling lose its leaves and form itself into a circle. One by one, eagle feathers began to arrive from each of the four directions to attach themselves to the willow hoop. He saw in his vision that each of the quadrants of the Hoop was painted a different color: Yellow in the east, Red in the south, Black in the west, and White in the north. The feathers stopped coming when 100 were hanging from the circle. Each feather represented a Native American Community.
