Full Harvest Moon Pipe Ceremony - September

Many of the Native American tribes' staple foods, such as corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and rice, are ready for gathering at this time. The strong light of the Harvest Moon allowed European farmers to work late into the night to harvest their crops. The Harvest Moon does not always occur in September. Traditionally, the name goes to the full moon closest to the autumn equinox, which falls during October once or twice a decade. Sometimes the September full moon was called the Corn Moon.

When:  Saturday September 9, 2017  

Time: 3:00 pm 

Where: 125 Oceanview Rd, Lions Bay, BC

What: The pipe ceremony will be followed by a potluck feast. Please bring a dish to share, a small unwrapped gift for the give-away blanket, and ladies, please wear a long skirt or bring a shawl during the ceremony. This will be at Peter Frey's house and weather permitting, it will be held outside so protect yourselves from the sun and come prepared.
