Native America Calling

August 7, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Today, August 7 – Pipes: prayer, blessing, and communion

A quarry in Minnesota has been a reliable source for the stone used in ceremonial pipes for dozens of tribes throughout the central U.S. and Canada. Other tribes elsewhere found their own local sources for making pipes. We’ll talk about the importance of pipes and the methods for making them passed down through the centuries.

To join the discussion, call 1-800-996-2848
