Fall Equinox 2023

August 31, 2023

Join us at Manitou a bi Bii daziigae for the Fall Equinox Celebration on Monday, Sept. 25!

The Fall Equinox is one of the four transitory events that marks the changing of the seasons, along with the Winter and Summer Solstices and the Spring Equinox. The Fall Equinox is the moment in the Earth’s cycle when the Sun crosses the equator into the southern hemisphere. In the Fall, we harvest our crops and prepare for the long winter when the land is protected by a blanket of snow.

To acknowledge the changing of the season, we come together with Ceremony and a Feast. Join us in the Roundhouse Auditorium on Monday, September 25 in Manitou a bi Bii daziigae at the Exchange District Campus. The Roundhouse Auditorium is on the second floor on the west side of the Agora.

The morning will start with a Pipe Ceremony, followed by a Sharing Circle led by Elder-in-Residence Paul Guimond and Knowledge Keeper-in-Residence Richard Curé. The morning will close out with a Feast to celebrate the changing of the season.

All are welcome, no registration needed.

Location: Roundhouse Auditorium, Manitou a bi Bii daziigae

Date: Monday, Sept. 25, 2023
