UNACC’s 13th Bear Feast & Potluck (hibernating) November 12, 2017
Join us for the day as we hold ceremony for the Fall/Winter Bear Feast. We will gather to honor the Bear as he begins his journey to the Spirit World.
We will start to gather at 12 PM and the ceremony will begin at 1 pm by joining a circle.
No food or drink in the circle
The Ceremony will be explained at the start.
Please, do not break the circle until after the ceremony is completed. Do all you need to do before you join the circle. The ceremony will last about 1 to 1.25 hours.
We will have a pipe ceremony. Those asked to participate will partake in this outside due to our smoke detectors inside the building. Again, we ask that those who remain inside the building, please, maintain the circle. Once the pipe ceremony is completed, we will continue with the Bear Feast ceremony inside the building.
Please, bring hand drum and rattles.
Women, who are participating in the ceremony are asked to wear/bring a long skirt. We will try to have some on hand for those who do not remember to do this.
*** If you should arrive after the start of the Bear Feast ceremony, we ask that you sit behind the circle and observe.
Following the Bear Feast ceremony, we will have a potluck. Please, bring a dish to share.
