Come to Skóhare for the 2023 Waterfall Unity Festival.
Last summer, we hosted our first annual Waterfall Unity Concert. With the assistance of the funds raised from the concert, we purchased what is now Iotsi’tsisons (Skywoman’s) Forever Farm. This year, we’d like to extend an invitation for you to join us at the 2023 Waterfall Unity Festival, a benefit concert and celebration. From July 28th-30th, we will be celebrating, honoring and giving gratitude for the growth of our vision. Join us as we honor the Kanien’kehá:ka rematriation and return to ancestral homelands.
To purchase tickets, visit our Eventbrite. To purchase at camping spot, visit our page at Hipcamp Tickets are not required to attend, though they are encouraged. All proceeds go directly toward our language immersion earth school and programs. As we continue to walk the path to sovereignty, returning to our language is crucial. Our language immersion earth school and programs will ensure that our language will be carried forward to future generations. Your presence and support will assist us in the creation of our manifestations for our people.
We look forward to seeing your beautiful spirits. Nia:wen.
