Workshop on the Native American Church with Cheyenne Arapaho Margaret Behan "Red Spider Woman" @Catland, Brooklyn
"When we sit in circle we create a human altar. Come and join in, with all of your sacredness."
Margaret Behan is the founder of the Cheyenne Elders Council, a fourth generation survivor of the Sand Creek Massacre, and granddaughter of the founders of the movement now known as the Native American Church. She is a former member of the "The International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers" a global alliance of wise women who believe that ancestral ways of prayer, peacemaking, and healing are vitally needed today. She is committed to bringing the wisdom of the elders to future generations and is known for her healing work in the areas of trauma, addiction and oppression, and is also a traditional artist telling the stories of her people's beadwork, pottery and dancing.
Grandmother Margaret wants to share her experience with you in this method of ritual and practice. She invites you to prepare yourself for the circle with intention, and to come to the gathering with that intention in the form of a prayer request. Bring a small prayer object for this purpose.
"When you pray your prayers come true. This is the way my people came to be. That is why I am here. The Native Americans survived attempts of extermination, survived with our own ways of worship, our own belief systems and we are still in existence today. My existence is proof that my grandparents' prayers were answered."
We are thrilled to invite you to this rare opportunity to sit in healing space with Grandmother Behan.
