Help the Native Americans mend the ‘sacred hoop’ of life--the goal to bring families of all races together, to bring down the walls of misunderstanding, to share a little of all heritages through drumming, music, dance, and story, and to understand that we are not that different.
Pick up the children, grandchildren, relatives, friends and neighbors. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs—join us for this special weekend at our brand new location. For more information about this event or how you can volunteer, register as a vendor or make a donation please visit our Contact Us page.

- To continue the dream of Ralph Moisa III.
- To place love at the top of our list.
- To love Mother Earth and care for her.
- To love our fellow beings, the four legged, the winged,
- the fish, insect and plant life.
- To remember our place among them, not above them.
- To use the gifts unique to each of us, to bless the circle.
- That we may walk tall before our Creator.
- To honor those who have gone before us and those yet to come.
- We hope that all of you can attend this year and share your heart, support and help in the mending of the "Sacred Hoop".
We, as Indians say that the "Sacred Hoop" is broken. It means we have forgotten what is important, our families, our children, our communities, and our world. If we fail to take our proper place in each of these areas, then the hoop is broken.
We live in a new and dangerous world. If we can not teach our children to be accepting and tolerant, but also know who they are, and be proud of their heritage then we can begin to heal.
It is our goal to bring families and all races together, to bring down the walls of misunderstanding, to share a little of all heritages, through music and dance, and to understand that we are not that different.
We hope that you will be a part of this celebration and that you to will join us in the Mending of the "Sacred Hoop".
We are looking for performers and volunteers to help us celebrate this event. We have had thousands of people attend the event in recent years and we are looking forward to seeing and meeting even more this year!
