Makoose Ka Win and Vision Quest – Youth Rites of Passage to Adulthood
June 2 to 5, 2015 – Turtle Lodge
A call to all young men, women,
and to those seeking meaning & a vision.
Makoose Ka Win are rites of passage that are conducted by the Grandmothers, who will provide teachings of how to honour and carry oneself as a Woman.
This will be a time for all Women to recognize and understand the sacredness of Woman. It is time for Women to claim and embrace their rightful positions of honour and responsibility in walking with and leading all people — men, women & children, back to our sacred way of life.
The Vision Quest enables men and adolescent boys to engage in an ancient ceremony that assists in the transition from one life stage to the next, with purpose and meaning.
As a young boy seeks his vision on a Vision Quest he is initiated by Mother Earth. All Men must be initiated by Woman to understand life’s sacredness. We are making a call for young boys and men to participate in a Vision Quest to be initiated by the Earth this coming spring. They will be encouraged and watched over daily by the Elders.
