Chief Arvol Looking Horse, a Sioux Elder, sent out a call for an international day of prayer for the Gulf Region. We decided to gather to sing our prayers and join our hearts in compassion and concern for the ocean waters, the sea and land creatures, and the humans who dwell along the shores.This is a benefit evening for the Gulf Restoration Network http://www.healthygulf.org/ Donations/Dana will go directly to this grassroots network that is coordinating relief throughout the region.
