Mitakuye Oyasin (all my relations),

The 24th annual World Peace and Prayer Day, a multi-cultural honoring of sacred sites envisioned by the spiritual leader of the Lakota Sioux, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, is coming to Ohio June 18-21, 2019.  Chief Looking Horse will lead this annual commemoration to bring attention to Indigenous Peoples sites in Ohio, inspire youth, and provide learning opportunities for educators and artists, faith-based and civic leaders, and all those concerned with the health of our environment.

Your support will help bring together faith leaders from across the globe to pray for peace and the healing of the Earth. It will support housing, transportation, and meals for faith leaders from as far away as New Zealand's Mauri, Aboriginal Australia, Japan, and Eskimo.

In 1996, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle, began conducting annual World Peace and Prayer Day (WPPD) ceremonies to encourage people of all faiths and all nations to offer prayers for the planet on the summer solstice, June 21st. Across cultures, the solstice is considered a powerful time to pray, especially at sacred sites. For the past 23 years, WPPD has been held at sites across the US and around the world. This year, the gathering comes to Ohio to honor the sites sacred to the Indigenous Peoples of this region.

Fort Ancient, just a few miles East of Lebanon, Ohio, has been chosen as the host site for this 4-day gathering. The Fort Ancient site has been used for many centuries by Indigenous People as a place to gather together for the spiritual ceremony. This event is being hosted by the Greater Cincinnati Native American Coalition, and Miami Council of Native Americans in partnership with; International Children's Month, the Ohio Poor Peoples Campaign, the Sierra Club,  and We the World.
