Boozhoo and Tansi! Welcome to those of you who are interested in learning about Full Moon Ceremonies. Christine Cyr, director of the Indigenous Student Centre, runs this group.
Here are some details from Christine to help get you started:
WHAT IS IT?
Full Moon Ceremony to honour ourselves, other women, and our relationship with the Grandmother Moon. A time to come together and celebrate life.
Fire pit outside Migizii Agamik - Bald Eagle Lodge (if it is too cold or in case of extreme rain or snow, we will meet in the Circle Room). The doors to the building will be locked, but you can come around to the fire pit area. We will try to leave that door open, but if it’s not, just knock loudly. Worst case scenario, call my cell and I will come open the door. 204-470-6572.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Any and all girls and women and those who identify as women and girls, including women on their Moon Time.
WHAT TO BRING
-cloth - usually half a metre of yellow (or any other colour of the rainbow) broadcloth. I will keep extra cloth on hand for students.
-tobacco - enough to put a handful into your cloth. Again, I will have extra tobacco on hand for students.
-long skirt. (If you do not have a long skirt, we have several here for borrowing).
-snack to contribute to the sharing feast afterwards
-warm clothes, blanket, etc. for cold weather
Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to celebrating with you!
