Description:
During the entrance ceremony, the 100 Eagle Feather Hoop of the Nations will be carried in by members of your own community to begin the day. The Hoop carries the gifts of Healing, Hope, Unity and the Power to Forgive the Unforgivable. It has traveled Turtle Island so many times since 1995 to communities like yours that seek healing from substance abuse, domestic violence, and other struggles of Indian and non-Native people. The Hoops Grand Entry marks the start of a day of miracles for the community.
