Winter-Solstice Nee-dash Schedule 2011
Fellow Dee-ni’ and Friends come partake in this Winter Solstice Nee-dash Ceremony and activities. In the beginning of time, the Creators handed down the laws for the Dee-ni’ people to follow. The law says to dance and say the prayers until you have prayed for everything “clean” around the world. The Nee-dash protocol, prayers and responsibilities are handed to down and taught to each dance leader. The dance house was constructed to continue this practice. Come be a part of continuing our life ways and to help keep the World in Balance. Nee-dash, the ceremonies and activities will be hosted at the Dance House at Nii~-lii~-chvn-dvn on South Bank Road.
