Since the beginning of time people have been gathering at power spots in nature to reconnect with the land, with the spirit, with each other and cultivate peace. Sacred Sites are critical for peace, they are essential if we want to live in balance with our environment. Today many tribes, villages, First Nations, and non-natives are experiencing encroachment from extractive industries that devastate the land and water as well as war.
Chief Arvol Looking Horse is leading a call for people to protect, honor, and create sacred places that honor our connections to each other and the land. That is why June 21 has been designated as a day to raise awareness about the importance of sacred sites.
