The Return of the Ancestors Gathering

Northern Arizona April 18-28, 2009

The Institute for Cultural Awareness presents a historic International multicultural gathering and sacred pilgrimage welcoming Indigenous elders and future wisdom keepers representing the voice of Mother Earth, beginning Earth Day weekend, April 18-28, 2009 throughout Northern Arizona. The heart of the gathering will be the 4th reunion of the Continental Council of Indigenous Elders and Spiritual Guides of the Americas. The intention is to unite and share the invited wisdom keeper's visions and prophesized ceremonies for peace and harmony for Mother Earth and all humanity.

The Institute for Cultural Awareness' goal is to sponsor 72 or more global spiritual/cultural leaders and 28 youth council leaders from around the world. These wisdom keepers will share a harvest of harmonic wisdom and understandings that will enable the world to fulfill the prophecies of the ancestors. This gathering's commitment to ceremony as a focal point offers pilgrims of the world the privilege to witness councils sharing wisdom from their ancestors, songs and sacred ceremonies. This intention is to bring inspiration to the world thus birthing clear decisions and manifesting a conduit of hope for our children, the future wisdom keepers of the world.

Humanity has waited for the day of peace and harmony to reign in this world for hundreds of years. We are at a pivotal point where action needs to be taken. We must move in a new direction towards each individual seeking the healing of their ancestral memories to enable humanity to move forward. A proclamation will be made for the ancestral memories to be healed globally for all time.

We are now living in a time of our truth and an intertwined field of destiny mending the circle of life. Let us look at the truth: the tree of life, the seed of life, the flower of life. The world has awaited a renewed life's plan. We look towards our grand elders and wisdom keepers' Cosmovision for specific instructions and guidance towards the reconnection to the natural laws. The seen and unseen from the past, present and future unfold. Destiny brings us all to this point in time. The men and women of wisdom have returned. History and Herstory is unfolding in front of our very own eyes.

Whether attending the gathering physically or through private ceremony, everyone is being called to participate in this historic and extraordinary event. Through humanity's enlightenment, once again we will live in balance and harmony with Mother Earth. All is in divine timing!

One Mayan prophecy states, "At the time of the 12 Baktun and 13 Ahau is the time of the return of our ancestors and the return of the men of wisdom." "That time is now," says Grandfather Alejandro Cirilo Oxlaj, President of the National Mayan Council of Elders of Guatemala and President of the Continental Council of Indigenous Elders and Spiritual Guides of the Americas.
The Institute for Cultural Awareness is a 501c (3) non-profit corporation coordinating this monumental gathering. The vision of ICA is strong and motivated with a desire to build a better future for our children. Your support will provide a firm foundation to create a broader expression of service for humanity.

The Return of the Ancestors Gathering

Northern Arizona April 18-28, 2009

We need your support in helping us find land and/or facilities that can be donated for the month of April in the Sedona/Verde Valley area. This land will be used for housing the elders and wisdom keepers who represent the voice of Mother Earth. The event will begin on Earth Day and take place April 18-28, 2009 throughout Northern Arizona. The heart of the gathering will be the 4th reunion of the Continental Council of Indigenous Elders and Spiritual Guides of the Americas. The intention is to unite and share the invited wisdom keeper's visions and prophesized ceremonies for peace and harmony for Mother Earth and all humanity. We are greatly honored to have our beautiful Verde Valley be the location chosen for this momentous event. The intention of the Institute for Cultural Awareness is to sponsor 72 or more global spiritual/cultural leaders and 28 youth council leaders from around the world.

How you can help
· Allow us the use of a minimum of 5 acres of land to facilitate the elders and wisdom keepers
· Short term donations of vacation homes and/or retreat centers
· Public use facility - meetings, media, interviews of the elders and wisdom keepers
· Monetary contributions for sponsorship of the elders
· Donate a minimum of 5 Acres of land to the Institute of Cultural Awareness 501C3 to be used as a permanent space for future events
· Creative ideas for land acquisition for Institute of Cultural Awareness
· Volunteer assistance

We will need to have the land by March 15th; if not sooner, the land will have to be prepared with cleaning, clearing and blessings before their arrival. We will place on the land teepees, tents, trash bins and porta-potties, and some vehicles. There will also be controlled fires for cooking and ceremonies. We will need the homes and/or retreat centers by March 25th for preparations.

Donors will receive for their contribution a charity 501(c)3 receipt from the Institute for Cultural Awareness but, more importantly they will have the opportunity to witness an historical event with access to certain ceremonies and events throughout the 11 day pilgrimage.

A call for Help from Little Eagle South Dakota

Youth Call out for Help!

The past few months have been hard for us. Our 18 horses are needing food and their shots for the big winter coming. Our Horse Therapy program is what gives us hope to stay away from drugs and alcohol. We know it is through our connection with our Horses and Mother Earth we can gain the strength we need to stay strong and healthy. Many of our peers have taken their own lives and have lost their direction in life. We know today is a new day to move forward and make this coming years Horse Therapy program the best ever!

Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children. Quoted by Sitting Bull
