Fall Feasting of the Lands & Spirits Due to a number of reasons beyond our control, we have had to schedule and then reschedule our fall feasting.  With the cold weather now fast approaching, and leaves quickly dropping, we must do the ceremony asap.  The fall feasting of the lands and spirits will take place this Sat October 24th at 11:00 a.m. in the Roundhouse.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Our members are also encouraged to continue to feast their own drums, regalia, sacred items, etc. at their own chosen time and place.
