SKHC Calendar 2021

Cultural Understanding Before for the sun rises, just as the birds begin to sing, a fire keeper’s day is about to begin. Out into the darkness as dawn is approaching, the bundle is laid out in preparation. The gathering of the sacred medicines must be assembled together by the fire keepers to meet in the new day. Prayers of gratitude and acknowledgement for the new life that is to be greeted are offered. Tending to this fire is also tending to the fire within, to burn strong and sure. Your heart and mind must be true and strong. FIRE KEEPERS SUNRISE Painting by Leland Bell
