To all my relations 🕸️
All my Relations or Mitakuye-Oyasin is a saying in the Obijway or Lakota language meaning We are all related or All are related. It is at the core of Native beliefs and spirituality and said out loud in many ceremonies.
But what does it mean? Well, it means we are all on the same boat, that all living things are connected, to each other and to the Creator, the Primordial Source. What I do affects you and all beings, and what you do affects me because I am You. Everything we do has an effect on others and on our world and essentially ourselves. It also means that everything has a spirit and that’s how we are connected to each other and to the primordial source. Native practices and beliefs honor the saying. How? By treating each other and what Mother Earth and Father Sky has given us with respect.
At Tribal Gathering it is truly amazing to genuinely feel that idea embedded in all of the 60+ invited indigenous tribes through everything that they honor us in sharing.
You will also find it in the music, in the dancing, in the arts.
You will find it in the hard work of all our dedicated team, humbly trying our best to make the festival happen while always leaving a positive trace vs leaving no trace.
You will find it in the nature and land, this subtle magical reciprocity in all expressions of mother nature.
You will find it in yourself, engaging with the opportunity to go out of your comfort zone, to discover new cultures, new parts of yourself, to learn new skills, to be open to the marvelous diversity of life in all its forms, to heal, pray and connect, to celebrate life and dedicate it for the benefit of all.
