“Planting the Seeds of Our Future”
Now is the time for all our community to come together as One for the preservation of the Gaviota Coast. We will be holding Prayer Ceremony at Kuya’mu (Naples) on Sunday, June 21st, Summer Solstice, at 11 am to honor the land, our children, and all beings, as come together in love as One community. Art Cisneros, Chumash Elder and Firekeeper will be conducting our Ceremony. We are calling on our children to join our Prayer Ceremony. You are the seeds of our future, and you will be planting the seeds of your future. Naples (Kuya’mu) holds the future of our community; just as the children hold the future of our community. The children will be “Planting the Seeds of the Future” so bring acorns, and let us all join together in planting our seeds of Forgiveness, and Vision our future together with Ceremony.
