ESTEEMED BROTHERS AND SISTERS FROM THE PEACE AND DIGNTIY JOURNEYS AND ALL
THE ANCESTRAL PUEBLOS of Abya Yala:
We send you a strong energy embrace from Tawantinsuyo! We brought back the regenerated Eagle Staff after a strong and long ceremonial process. The Eagle staff was passed to Abuelo Salvador Reza until we are able to meet with the different northern regions to coordinate planning for the next journey in 2020.
Attached you will find a letter from our brothers of Tawantinsuyo that will explain the process in more detail.
The following is to request your presence to accompany the Eagle staff and other brothers and sisters to transmit the prayers from the Eagle staff at the “Little Big Medicine” Sundance in Wheatfields, Arizona from July 21 to 28, 2018.
After the ceremony in Quito where the Taytas and Maymas presented the Staff before the fire, we will take the New Eagle Staff to the “Little Big Medicine Sun Dance” and ask Chief Danny John to help us transmit the prayers from the Eagle Staff that guided us 7 times from 1992 to 2016 to the new staff. The “Little Big Medicine” Sun Dance was the place where the original Eagle Staff was rested after observing fissures and deterioration on the Staff in 2017. The teachings of the elders say that running with an injured staff can also injure us.
We invite the different Peace and Dignity representatives to participate as possible, not only for the upcoming ceremony, but to plan ceremonies in their respective regions with the New Eagle Staff and other Peace and Dignity staffs to prepare for 2020. In a very special manner we urge you to include the different original nations to be an integral part of this preparation to have the maximum participation and guidance in great part by the original nations themselves for 2020.
Thank you for supporting this prayer.
In Peace and Dignity,

NEW SUNDANCE DATES !!!!
SUNDANCE DATES -July 21- July 28, 2018
Summer Channupa – July 29, 2018
READ THIS ALL!!! READ THIS CAMPERS!!!
We have a few reminders about reserving camping spots.
1. Reserved is reserved! There are some areas that are reserved for the purpose of keeping accessibility to the kitchen, lodges and arbor.
2. As of right now there are only about 5 reserved camping spots! Due to the elements there may be wear and cause reserved lines to break, this is why we ask Campers to call and remind us so that we can check on your reserved area. If needed to put your reserve lines back up.
3. Do not rope off large areas unless it is approved by LBM Security, Chief Danny John or First Lady Lavine. We have to share the camp grounds and it is not possible when people are roping off areas more than they need.
4. WE HAVE TO, think of the Elders(70+ and older) and disabled, we have to think of their safety and allow them to Camp close to the Arbor.
