World Prayer and Peace Day comes to Southern Oregon

KlamBlog wishes to call to the attention of readers and followers an important event that is taking place June 18-21 in Southern Oregon just outside the Klamath River Basin.  World Peace and Prayer Day is a "cross-cultural celebration" in which people of "all nations" and "all faiths"  join together with "music, dance, traditional teachings and feasting" to promote "co-existence among all peoples and nations."

This year's 20th annual celebration is being organized by Red Earth Descendants. It takes place  at Howard Prairie Lake Resort, 3249 Hyatt Prairie Road on the outskirts of Ashland, Oregon. Local Indigenous Elder Agnes Baker Pilgrim will be one of the honored guests and presenters.

Let's join together in person or in spirit on June 21st to celebrate the solstice and pray for unity in our river basin and world-wide.
