Oneida: The Creation Story

Indigenous cultures all over the world have traditional teachings of how the world as they know it originated. Within these stories there are universal commonalities as well as a great diversity of variances unique to each ethnic group of people the world over. The Iroquois are an oral society and have passed down through millennia their understanding of how the world began through stories.

These teachings will give the participant an aboriginal view of the world and explains the responsibilities the Creator intended the human family to uphold as the protectors of the natural world. This is a relationship that was always intended to be respectful and is based on reciprocity.

If this workshop is of interest to you, we are also offering workshops on Oneida Ceremonies on Feb. 22, 2014 and/or Oneida: "Great Law" on March 12, 2014.
