Native American prayer & land acknowledgement

Gratefulness for thorns

with Susan Stone

This year marks 500 years since the thanksgiving celebration at Plymouth by European settlers and members of the Wampanoag nation. As an acknowledgment of the suffering of Native Americans, who have been targets of genocide and policies of erasure, our guided meditation tonight will be structured around a Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving greeting to the natural world. This greeting was created by Mohawk people in 1993. We also pay tribute to Native Americans’ stewardship of the land. Our meditation will close with a land acknowledgement expressed by Michael Wilson, an elder of the Potowatami nation. Following a short break, Susan will offer comments on gratitude and thanksgiving.
