Weekly Spirit Calling at Akikodjiwan/Chaudière
December 23, 2018 - November 17, 2019
Chaudière Falls, 4 Booth St.

People attending will call in the spirits of the falls, the river and islands to reveal and free themselves in a weekly dedication . This is an event for Indigenous and non-indigenous people dedicated to the spirits of this ancient place. This is a spiritual and environmental act intended to ensure that this Vatican, this Wailing Wall, this Mecca is respected and permitted to fulfill its timeless destiny as the place of Creator's First Sacred Pipe, a place of worship, and awe. And for Kabeshinan Minitig/Victoria Island, to fulfill its original intention as a place for gathering of All Nations, trade and negotiation.
