“We call upon our sisters and their allies around the world to gather together on each new moon to pray for the sacred system of life, guidance and wisdom.” These words come from the historic Indigenous Women of the Americas – Defending Mother Earth Treaty Compact of 2015, which was signed on the day of the fourth Blood Moon, the Harvest Moon and the total lunar eclipse on Sunday, September 27, 2015 on Lenape Territory in New York City.
For more information, please read the entire Treaty on the front page of this website.
You are invited to join us in this prayer from wherever you are on Mother Earth’s belly. In the San Francisco Bay Area, we will be meeting on the shoreline of Berkeley, California at Cesar Chavez Park, at the end of the road where the parking circle is, on the right side near the waterfront. Feel free to bring water from your watershed or a favorite place to share with the waters of the Bay. We will have prayers for the water and prayers for guidance as we work together as defenders and protectors of Mother Earth.
These ceremonies are conducted on each new moon. The dates for 2019:
Mon/Feb 4th – Wed/Mar 6th – Fri/Apr 5th – Sat/May 4th – Mon/Jun 3rd – Tue/Jul 2nd
